How do I upload an image to my site?

The Choose & Place Images menu within your Website Builder allows you to select images to be used in various widgets on your site. You can add images to your site from almost anywhere, including your existing site, Facebook account, computer, other sites on the internet, or our built-in stock image collection. This gives you access to a huge variety of image options to suit your site, so you can find exactly the right image to represent your business.

When selecting images to use on your site, by default the editor uses the quick picker.

Quick Image Picker:

The quick image picker is a simple way to choose images. You can select images from your folders or from images that we have already pulled into the platform.

With the quick picker open, you can:

  1. Select the folder with images you want to use.
  2. Click the + icon to upload your own image.
  3. Switch to the Full View for more image choice options.

Image Sources

The responsive editor automatically displays images from a number of different sources, including:

  • The site you are importing (if you import a site)
  • Free images from various sources (such as Unsplash)
  • Related Facebook business page
  • Uploaded images

You can select between these sources by clicking through the tabs on the left.

Choose Images

Simply select an image to get more information about it. You can see the size, name and more on the right side after you've selected it.

Upload New Images

Click Upload Images to upload a new image from your computer.

If you prefer to upload your own images via Facebook or another method, you can close out the initial dialogue box and click Upload from... instead.

Additionally, you can upload images directly to a folder by selecting your designated folder before selecting Upload Images.

You have the following options:

  • Search for web images from Wikipedia and Google Images.
  • Add images from Facebook, Flickr, Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Photos, or a specific URL.
  • Upload images from your computer by dragging an image from your computer into the marked section.

Add Images

To add an image, click the image to select it.

When selecting images for the Image Slider or Photo Gallery widgets, you can select multiple images at one time. As you do, each image will be surrounded by a colored border. When you click Done, all selected images will be added to the widget.

Manage Images

You can organize and manage your images to make updating your site's content more streamlined. With the image picker window opened, click the Manage Images toggle to switch modes.

There are many options available in this mode.
