How do I upload photos to a BSD template website?

There are two main ways to upload photos when you are logged in to the site. The first is through the Media section.

  1. In the menu bar, hover over Content and then click on Media in the drop-down.
  2. Click the Add media button in the top left, then click on Image. This brings you to a page where you can choose an image file to upload from your computer and give it a name, an optional caption, and an optional credit.
  3. Click Save to finish uploading the image. 

You can also upload photos directly while editing a page.

  1. Find any image component that does not yet have an image, then click on the white button that says Select media. Clicking on this button will bring up the Media Entity Browser, which by default shows you all the images that have already been uploaded to your site.
  2. At the top, click Upload to be brought to the file upload section.
  3. Drag-and-drop an image file from your computer into the box, or click on Select files to browse files on your computer.
  4. Hit the blue Select media button to finish uploading the image.

The image you uploaded will now be available to use in any component of your site that can house an image.

 

How do I change a photo on a BSD template website?

  2. Click on Select media to bring up the Media Entity Browser.
  3. Navigate through the uploaded images to find the one that you want (if you know the name of the image, you can also search for it in the bar at the top).
