Media: Upload and use images in Uberflip

Follow

Media is Uberflip’s dedicated media manager for uploading, editing, and inserting images into your pages, Hubs, and content. This article outlines how to use the Media widget for uploading images to your library and using them across Uberflip. 

 

Good to know

  • Media only supports image files (including GIFs) at this time 
  • The maximum file size for image uploads in the Media widget is 40MB (more than you should ever need!)
  • Media supports most image file types, such as JPEG, GIF, WEBP, PNG, and many more
  • Media automatically optimizes your images before serving them on your pages, Hubs, and blog posts. This means that some compression may occur to the file, but it’s unlikely you or your visitors would notice a difference. 

 

Upload images to the Media library

Note

After you’ve uploaded an image to the Media widget, it will remain in your Media library and can be used again in places

Here’s how to upload images to your Media library:

  1. In the Hubs area of Uberflip, click Media in the sidebar menu.
    Or wherever you see an add/upload/insert image button in Uberflip, click that.
  2. The Media Library will open in a modal. Click Upload.
  3. The upload modal will open. Drag & drop images (or folders) into the modal.
    Or select a different upload method at the top of the modal and follow the prompts.

That’s it! Your images are now part of your Media library. From here you can crop and resize the image, or insert it into your page, Hub, or content.
