Where to Find
You can view, upload and manage your files from the Photos and Media Manager. To access the Photos and Media Manager simply click the “MEDIA” option in the main toolbar.
Note: We do not allow the upload of .exe or .svg files at this time.
Uploading a file is a quick process. Simply click the “Upload New Files” button in the top right corner of the Photos and Media Manager. You can use this area to upload any type of file you want to share with your website visitors.
You can upload files from your computer or by using our stock photo library by navigating the following tabs:
Select the folder you wish to upload your file(s) to. If this is left unselected, files will go to the default unsorted categorization.
Drag and drop or click the upload screen to upload files from your computer.
Browse and search through our extensive stock photo library
Click on a photo to upload to your website and then click “Add To My Uploaded Files” to complete
Note: You can upload files with spaces in the file name, however, these will be converted to dashes (-) after uploading. This helps avoid potential problems with URLs.
You can continue to add files in this manner until you are ready to upload them to your account. Files are not added to file folders by default, however, you can select the folder you would like to upload to using the Add to Folder drop-down box prior to uploading.
You can also drag and drop files into the Photos and Media Manager, or by clicking in the drag and drop region, this will allow you to browse files you have locally on your computer to be uploaded.
Note: Files can be removed from the list of files to be uploaded at any time by clicking the button beside the file.
You will return to the main file manager with a list of your uploaded files. These files are now ready for use with your website!
