Upload an image - Recommended Uploader

1. Open the Image Manager

From the eazyCMS main menu, click on the "Image Manager" icon in the "Pages and their contents" section.

2. Open the uploader

At the bottom of the Image Manager main page, click on the "Add an Image" link. When the "How would you like to upload the images?" box appears, select the option on the left (as shown below):

3. Select the images you wish to upload

Click the "Add Files..." button. In the "Open" window, select the files you wish to upload (add multiple files by holding down the CTRL key as you click them). In the screenshot below we have selected 4 image files by holding down the CTRL key when clicking on each one:

When ready, click the "Open" button and the image files will be added to the upload queue - in the screenshot below, the 4 images selected above can be seen in the queue:

You can remove an image from the queue by clicking the Cancel button next to that image, as highlighted in the screenshot.

You can repeat the "Add Files.." process as many times as required to add all of the images you require to the queue before uploading.

Once you are happy that all of the images you wish to upload are in the upload queue, you are ready to start the upload.

Note 1: In Internet Explorer, you cannot select multiple files in the "Open" window - they must be added to the queue one-at-a-time.
Note 2: In Firefox, Chrome and Safari you can also add images to the queue by dragging them from your computer's file browser (e.g. from the desktop) into the main "Upload images" window.

4. Start the upload

If your images are very large, such as 10 megapixel digital photographs, then they will take a long time to upload - as well as being unusable in your pages as they are such high resolution. If this is the case, make sure you tick the "Reduce width to 450px" box before you start the upload - this will resize the images, making them easier to use in page content.

When you are ready, click the "Start upload" button. The images will be uploaded simultaneously, a progress bar being displayed next to each one to show you how much of file has been uploaded, as below:

Until an image has finished uploading, you can cancel its upload by clicking the appropriate Cancel button (as in step 3).

Once all of the images have been uploaded, you will be taken back to the Image Manager main page and the images will be ready to use in your site's pages.
