After you have selected an image, you can hover the mouse on the "Preview" text to see a preview of the image.

The setting in the Global Configuration controls if both of the other setting are set to 'Use Global'.

 +
#Globally, using [[Help25:Site_Global_Configuration#Permissions|Global Configuration]].
 +
#For all articles, using [[Help25:Content_Article_Manager_Options | Article Manager→Options]].
 +
#For all articles in a category, using [[Help25:Components_Content_Categories_Edit | Category Manager]].
 +
#For an individual article, using this screen.
 +
 +
This is where you can enter permissions for this one article. The screen shows as follows.[[File:Help25-screenshot-article-edit-permissions.png|frame|none]]
 +
 +

 +
# Select the Group by clicking its title.

 +
#:''Delete.'' Users can delete this article.
