Media Overview

Through Unstack, when you upload images, icons, or videos the files are automatically added to your Media library. Once they're a part of this library, they can be used again and again through your site without having to upload the file more than one. 

 

There are a couple ways you can upload these files; for one, they can be directly uploaded to your Media library via the process detailed below. Simply click on [+] to select a file to upload.
