How to upload images and documents to the site

Before you can include a new image or download link into a page, the image or document file must be transferred from your own computer to the web server.

Once the transfer is complete, the image will be available in the content editor for you to insert into your pages.

Repeat the process for each image or document that you wish to transfer.

It is a good idea to organise your files by creating folders for different file types or subjects. For information on how to create a folder, see below.
