     With the lite version it's not possible to browse the parent site for images elsewhere. This was raised as a support question for the full version but no answer was received to it other than to install the latest version. I'm currently using Editor Lite version 4.5.6 I believe.

     Obviously we can insert an image at the current site and edit the HTML, but would prefer it to be a little simpler than that.

    Hi Jason Brownhill,

    In the following article you can find information on the ImageManager functionality . There is described how to configure ImagesPaths and ImagesFilters properties of the RadEditor.

    Here is some additional information on how the ImagesPaths collection works.

    By default, all the libraries from the current site are included in the ImagePaths collection.

    When you set path starting without slash (e.g. "ImagesLibrary"), you will refer a local library - library from the current Web. If you set path staring with slash (e.g. /ImagesLibrary), you will refer a library from the SiteCollection (root).

    For example:

    Lets  open the SubSite1 ConfigFile.xml and set the following images path:
    <property name="ImagesPaths">
    The ImageManager will load the SiteCollection/SubSite1/ImagesLibrary. 

    If you set the path with slash the ImageManager will open the SiteCollection/ImagesLibrary e.g. 
    <property name="ImagesPaths">

    Also you should know that if you set e library such as SiteCollection/SubSite1/ImagesLibrary, the currently logged user should have at least reading rights for all site collections of the path. Otherwise the ImagesLibrary will not appear in the ImageMangager dialogue.

    I hope this helps.
