Media consists of the images, videos, recordings, and files that you upload and use in your store. Media is typically uploaded and inserted into the content when writing a Post or writing a Page. Note that the Uploading Setting in the Settings Media Screen describes the location and structure of the upload directory (where your media files are stored). If you do need to upload Media, even if that Media is not related to a Post or Page, then you need to use the Media Add New Screen.
Go to Storefront > Media > Add new to install new media by clicking the Add New link at the top of this screen or Select Media > Add New from the left side menu.
The Media Library Screen allows you to edit, view, and delete Media previously uploaded to your store. Multiple Media objects can be selected for deletion. Search and filtering ability is also provided to allow you to find the desired Media.
Media Library provides two types of views. One is a simple visual Grid View and another is a conventional List View. Switch between these views using the icons to the left above the screen.
In Media Library Grid View, clicking an Image thumbnail, Audio icon, or Video icon will display an Attachment Details dialog, which allows you to preview media and make quick edits. Any changes you make to the attachment details will be automatically saved. You can also delete individual items and access the extended edit screen from the details dialog.Use the arrow buttons at the top of the dialog, or the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard, to navigate between media items quickly.
Attachment Details change their appearance and information by media type. The left side of this dialog shows the Image, Audio player or Video player. The right side lists the following media file attributes and optional data. Some of them are editable from this dialog.
