Embedding an advanced gallery in the rich-text editor

When embedding an advanced gallery you have two options how to select the images for the gallery. You can Upload Files or Add Image.

  • The Upload Files option allows you to select files from your computer/network drive and upload them into Brightspot for use in your gallery.

  • The Add Image option allows you to select images for your gallery that have been previously uploaded into Brightspot.

Procedure. To embed an advanced gallery to the rich-text editor:
  1. In the Items field, select Advanced.

  2. You have the choice to Upload Files or Add Image.

    1. If you selected Upload Files, you have two choices available: Choose Files or Choose A Folder.

      2. Choose A Folder uploads all of the files contained within the selected folder.

      3. Complete the additional fields that are standard for any image upload for each file uploaded.

        Caution

        After the upload completes, only the last image uploaded is displayed with the image fields. Any data entered in these fields is applied to all of the images uploaded. You must individually edit each image with the correct data.
