There are two ways in which you can upload image files. The simplest and most immediate is by logging in to your site with your administrator login you can upload using the online upload system. If you have a large number of files that need to go online, however, you may elect to send Africa Media Online DVDs or a hard drive of images. Africa Media Online does reserve the right to charge for its time in assisting to load by the latter method, but this is still likely to involve cost savings given the price of bandwidth.

5. Immediately upon clicking on select, the files will begin to load. You will see a progress bar for each file as it loads. Once a file has loaded its progress bar will disappear. The count of number of files uploaded will not change from zero until all files are loaded. You can cancel the upload of an individual file by clicking on the red “x” and you can cancel all the uploads by clicking on “Cancel all Uploads”.
