Attach File

  • There are two options for adding files to content items
    • You can add it directly into the text field using the attach file button

  • From here you can choose to upload a picture from your computer or the content collection
  • If the image is on the web you can paste the url instead of uploading it
    • Note: If you do this there is a chance that the owner of the image will change the url and as a result the link will not work
  • Once uploaded make sure to give the image a description and title so users with screen readers can get an idea of what is being displayed
