Uploading assets is an easy process with just a few steps.
In the upload step you can add assets you want to upload in two ways:
- Drag files from your computer and drop them in the gray box (we call this a 'drop zone')
- Use the blue 'Browse' button and select files on your computer
Once the files have been added they will need some time to upload to the servers. Every asset has a progress bar to indicate their upload progress. Want to delete an asset before continuing? Just click the 'x' icon top right of the asset to remove it.
When all the assets are done uploading you can continue to the next step!
In this step you will decide which categories your asset belongs to. It's really important to note that every asset has to be part of at least one category. If you don't select a category you will not be able to continue the upload process.
Simply select the categories using the 'Add Categories' action. Your selection is listed below and will be applied to all the assets in your current upload process. The categories can be changed later (when editing an asset), but we strongly advise you to select the right categories from the start to avoid confusion.
Want to delete a category before continuing? Simply click the 'X' icon next to the category name to remove it.
3. Add metadata
In the final step you will be able to add metadata to your assets. This can be done for a single file or all uploaded files.
What is metadata?
Metadata contains extra information about your assets. Try to enter as much relevant information as you can, because the more you describe the asset the easier it is for other users to find it using our search function.
- File title
- Identifier (SKU)
- Publish date
- Expiration date
- Related assets
