Back to Media Library: Adding Images Part 2 Video


well so for example if I were to go back

to the Frog page that I was building

earlier and let's say that I'm in the

middle of editing that page

there's a couple ways that I can do this

if you're planning on adding the image

through a media card then all you need

to do is when you're you're adding your

media card let's say I'm gonna create a

road here and I'm gonna add a media card

instead of selecting from this drop-down

here the previously uploaded images you

have the option right up here for image

upload and so you can just click on

image upload and you can select the file

from your computer so let's say I'll

select this one here you'll give it a

name you'll give it some alternative

text and you'll fix your cropping if you

need to in this case I'm just going to

be using an immediate card so I don't

need to crop it and then when I'm all

done I can click select and don't forget

to scroll down once more and cliquey you

select it again and then that'll add

that image to the media the media card

here so it's both in the media card and

in the media library which is really

nifty now you might also need to add the

image to maybe just you know like the

body field of a basic card or maybe the

body field of just the regular page if

you're not using rows and cards and so

that's pretty easy to basically anywhere

that you have access to this WYSIWYG

editor this guy right here you'll see

there's a little a button for media

browser and so if I click on that

that'll actually show me again that my

existing media library options or an

addition I can also do the exact same

thing where I upload an image now one

thing to keep in mind is if you're gonna

be uploading images using this method

there'll be one key step at the end here

so I'm gonna go ahead and quickly fill

this out add my alt text and I don't

need a crop anything so I'll just click

select and I'll choose select one more

time and at this point if you're gonna

be adding in the body field what you'll

do is you'll just simply select

thumbnail you can choose whatever size

these are these size options that you

have and you can choose to align it to

the left or right if you need to add

some text around it and then when you

click embed it'll get added to the body

field and so if we save this page

and scroll down you'll see there's our

images right there

and if I go back to the media library

you'll see those images have been added

so there you go that is in a nutshell

how you would add these images to the

media library on the fly
