When you are logged in and ready to manage your slideshow, follow these steps:
Step 1: Find your album
Click the Albums tab at the top of the page, then find your album in the list. If the list is quite long, use the search box at the top to locate your album. Once you’ve found it, click the title.
You should now be on a page that looks like this:
This page gives you a quick overview of the album and allows you to make some changes. We want to click on the Upload link at the top of the page, which is marked with a (1) in the above screenshot.
Step 2: Upload Images
Now you should be on the Add Content page. Click the browse button and navigate to the directory on your computer where your images are stored. You can upload multiple images from the same directory simultaneously by holding down the command or control key and clicking on each file.
Once you select your files, you will be asked to confirm the upload. Having done that, the files will be uploaded and you will be redirected to the Content page.
Step 3: Edit your images
You should now be on the Content page, where you can manage the images in your Album. This page should look similar to the screenshot below.
Let’s walk through the highlighted sections from the above screenshot:
- Each thumbnail has a row of buttons. Click the leftmost button to reveal the edit controls for the image. The rightmost button will delete the image. Click and drag the thumbnail to reposition it in the Album.
- Having clicked the edit button for a thumbnail, you can now add a caption to it. Just type in a descriptive caption for the image here and hit the Save button when you’re done.
Once you’ve finished uploading and editing your images, check the slideshow on your website to ensure that your new images are displaying appropriately.
