Media Library

This area enables you to save and use a variety of media files on your website's pages.

Uploading Media Files

Please click the "Upload" button to add new content. The default maximum upload file size is 2M (unless your hosting has overriding settings).

Please note: If you want to raise it further, please contact your hosting service and request that the following server extensions be modified: upload_max_filesize; post_max-size; memory_limit.

If you're not sure whether you have enough high-resolution photos and images for your website to be visually attractive, consider using Unsplash (free photo stock) as described in this article.

You will be able to see a notification area, allowing you to drag files into the box or use two different methods:

1) "Choose Files" button to upload photos from your hard drive into the Media Library;

2) "Photos by Unsplash" function to add free pictures from Unsplash site.

You'll need to locate the correct file on your computer and approve the procedure if you use the "Choose files" option. During the uploading process, you will be presented with a progress bar.

If you utilise the "Photos by Unsplash" feature, you may search for the required theme in the "Search" bar, choose photos, and then download them or search for additional images via the "Load More" button.

If you're getting this message, it's because your files aren't in the proper format and don't exceed the maximum upload size.

File Properties

Each file has its own set of properties. File properties include detailed information about the file (type, size, author, date, dimensions, and so on).

"File URL" reflects the file's location on the server.

"File Name". The title of a file on a server is called the "file name." If you change the title of a file, it will show up differently in the Media Library, but the physical file name will stay the same.

"Image Thumbnails" displays the thumbnails of the selected image in the Media Library.

"Default Title" - your image’s title (can be changed within the same field for a mentioned image within the Media Library). Adding a title improves SEO (when you hover over an image with your cursor, you will see the image's title). Such titles may also be indexed by search engines.

"Default Alt" - if your browser's settings prevent you from previewing pictures, this text will show instead of your picture, this is essential for accessibility like screen readers etc.

If you need to change the Default Title or Default Alt, please fill out the relevant fields and click "Save" after entering your information.

There are several filters in the Media Library that allow you to organise your media files in a number of ways:

"Root Folder" is a folder that allows you to preview all folders and subfolders. It's accessible by default. There are two types of folders: empty folders and full folders.

Please note: the number of folders is unlimited, while the number of subfolders is limited to 5.

You may have up to 5 subfolders in the empty main folder. You can just drag them into the appropriate directory with your mouse cursor.

If you wish to create a new folder, use the "Add" button. Within the "New Folder Name" section, type the name of the folder and click "Add".

You can change the name of the folder, click the "Edit" button. If you wish to remove the folder, click the "Remove" button.

"Set as favourite" option allows you to designate certain folders that you use frequently, making them easier to find with the "star" icon and other sorting options in the "Sort By" section, such as sort by date, letter or size.You can also use the Search icon to find the required images from the list of available images.

You may preview the image by clicking on the "eye" icon over it or view its thumbnails by selecting its sizes from the right side.
