Adding Photos- Media Crew

Getting your photos on your computer

  • If you are using an sd card, put your card into the slot on the back of the computer
  • Create a new folder on your desktop (title this what ever you want)
  • Drag the files from your sd card to the desktop
  • To remove your sd card, make sure to drag the sd card icon to the trash. This will allow you to eject the sd card
  • Once the icon is removed, you can safely take out your sd card. If you remove the sd card without properly ejecting it, it could damage the files

  • Click on ‘Select Files’
  • Find your images on the computer (I recommend doing a few at a time…if you do them all it will take a really really really loooooooong time)
  • Once all the files are uploaded, select all the ones that will be included in your porfolio
  • Once you have selected all the necessary files, click the ‘Create a new gallery’ button on the bottom right
  • Match your settings to the image below
  • Click on ‘Insert gallery’
  • Press ‘Update’ or ‘Publish’ (located under the Publish category on the top right)
  • Click on the Preview option
  • You should now see a gallery of your work
  • Close that screen and repeat this process for all of your categories
