Live Blog 2.0 for Journalists

Media archive

The media archive, accessed by clicking on the Media Archive button, is a repository into which you can upload media files – images, audio and video. Within the media archive you can search for particular files, filter on a variety of criteria, and edit the metadata of uploaded files. As Superdesk develops, the files contained in the media archive will be accessible across the software suite, but for now the media archive is mainly a repository of images for placement into posts created in the Edit tab of Live Blog.

To upload one or more images from your computer, click on the Add Media button. This will bring up the Add Image dialog. Click the Select file from folder button to upload an image or simply drag it in.

Use your web browser's file upload dialog to navigate and select the file(s) you wish to upload. In most browsers and operating systems you can use a combination of the Control and Shift keys together with mouse clicks or arrow keys to select and upload multiple files from a folder.

During the upload process, you will have an opportunity to add metadata – a title, description and caption – to accompany the image.

You can adjust this metadata on any file in the media archive via a drop-down menu.

When you have built up a large collection of items in the media archive, you will find the various search and display controls useful. These include the ability to filter by file type, date and language, and to alter how many files are displayed on each page, and whether they are shown in grid view or list view.
