Media Uploader Overview
We’ve responded to your suggestions and requests with some changes to your media upload options.
You can now access all of your uploaded files through your Media Library, which is in your dashboard under the Media menu. Below the Library is Add New, through which you can upload files from your computer or the web.
As always, your blog comes with 3,000 megabytes of space, and the ability to upload images and documents in these file types: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, pdf, doc, ppt, odt.
To upload music and videos, you’ll need to purchase the Space Upgrade in 5, 15, or 25 gigabytes. You can purchase the Space Upgrade under the Upgrades menu in your dashboard. The Space Upgrade will allow you to upload these file types: mp3, mp4, m4a, wav, ogg, mov, wmv, avi, mpg.
From the Media Library, you’ll see how much space you’ve used, and how much you have left. You’ll also see which post or page a file has been attached to in the Attached to column.
To see which files haven’t been added to a post or page yet, click the Unattached filter. A new list will display, showing only those files that haven’t been attached to a post or page.
Click the Edit action link from within the Media Library to change the Title, Caption, and Description. Click View to see the file on the post or page it’s attached to.
To add a file to a post or page, just click the Attach action link. You’ll see a popup that will allow you to search for the title of an existing post or page, and attach straight from there.
As always, there are also options to upload and insert media from the Media Toolbar above the text editor: images, videos, music, other media types, and polls.
Click Show next to items in the Media Library from this view, and you can change a number of options for files, including image size and alignment.
