I have successfully installed the connector (following all steps documented on the link above) on Pega 8.2.1 with Pega Marketing 8.2. I can browse the AEM repo from pega but i cannot figure out how to get my images into my pega marketing applications, i was expecting just to be able to add an image by browsing the AEM repo that i have configured as active for the application and select the one i want to display. But i can only browse the pega hosted images or enter hardcoded links.
There is very little supporting documentation on the use of this connector, so I'm not sure if...
a. My expectations of the connector are too great
b. I'm using the correct method of getting pega mkt to consume AEM hosted images.
Has anybody got any experience of this connector and can give me a few pointers?

Have you updated the 2 Dynamic System Settings that are mentioned in the link and also flushed the D_RepositorySettings data page?
Also, you mentioned you were able to browse the AEM resources in Pega, do you mean you browsed this in the Content Library Landing Page in the Pega Marketing portal? If you were able to browse the content via the Content Library then you should be able to select and add the image content to email by click on the image icon as shown in the attachment.
If you cannot view the AEM content either in the Content Library or the selection popup then I think it is not configured correctly.

The install was configured correctly, the bit i was missing was the context around how to use the connector, your screen shot helped a lot, i can insert AEM images into Marketing Campaign Emails, Thank you!
I wonder if you could help me further?...
Is this the only way in which AEM asests can be used within Pega or are there other aspects of Pega Marketing that can display AEM assets via the connector e.g. microsites etc?
Also, can the connector only expose images from the DAM to Pega or can content (text), page templates, css, etc be exposed too? I.e. how far does the connector take us towards being able to master digital content in AEM and expose it in Pega?
Apologies if these questions are covered in support docs but I've not been able to find any documentation that clearly defines the scope of the connector or best practises around mastering digital content in AEM.
Thank you very much for your help so far.
