Fort Hays State University > Adding Images & Documents
There are a few ways to add images and documents to the CMS. Some ways are more suitable for certain types of files. One of the main differences is where to upload the items; the Library, or to the Content folder as an asset. The differences and best uses for each are summarized below.
The library folder stores images, files, quicklinks, and hyperlinks that can be inserted into your content. The library is best used for images. There are multiple ways to add images to the library, which will be described in more detail below.
Before adding an image to the library, resize them using a photo editing software like Microsoft Picture Manager (Start > All Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Office Tools). The website content area is 700 pixels wide, so images larger than that will be distorted or cut off.
Assets can be added from the content folder. PDF’s and other documents should be added as Assets, as opposed to Library items. There are a few advantages to using assets in comparison to the Library for these types of files.
Once you have decided where you need to add your item, you can proceed.
