What is my Media Library?
Your Media Library is a place where you can upload images to be used for your Brushfire events and products. There are a number of places throughout Brushfire where you are allowed to select an image from your Media Library to be displayed on an event or product page.
Viewing your Media Library
The Media Library can be accessed from the dashboard by clicking on "Media Library" in the sidebar on the left side of your screen. Once the page loads, you will see a grid containing thumbnails of every image in your Media Library.
Adding Images to the Media Library
After navigating to your Media Library, follow these steps to add an image:
- Click the dialog at the top of your library to bring up a window where you can select files to upload.
- In the window that appears, select the files that you wish to upload to your library.
- Once you have selected the files, click the green cloud button to upload your files
Pro Tip: Add the year and name of your event to the beginning of all file names before uploading to keep things organized and easy to find.
Note: Spaces in filenames somethings prevent images from displaying correctly when viewed in certain email provider inboxes. Removing spaces when uploading is recommended.
Editing Media Library Items
Once a file has been uploaded to your Media Library, in addition to using it for your Brushfire events, you can also change its name or delete it.
To change the name of a file, click on that file's name in the gallery. In the window that appears, type the file's new name and click "Save"
To delete a file, click the trash can button next to the file, then click again to delete it.
Note: Deleting images or updating filenames of images which are in use by active events will require that you verify/reconnect images where they were connected before updates were made.
