Prezly uses an image uploader that makes it simple to upload images from your local computer or from the internet using services such as google photos, dropbox, google drive, etc. It also gives you the option to use your laptop camera or a direct link from the web.
Adding new Images
Whenever you need to add new images to Prezly, either in a story or in your newsroom media gallery, you'll see the following window.
Here you can upload images from:
- Your local machine;
- A direct url link;
- Google Drive;
- Google Photos;
- Use the camera to take a photo;
After you select your images from one of those sources above, You'll see a Preview page, where it shows the list of images you've selected and their uploading status. Here you can also remove images you might no longer want to add, reorder the list or crop certain images before you add them to your story or media gallery.
You can change the display order of your images by clicking in the image you want to change and dragging it up or down in the list.
2. Add Caption
