Manage media in Site Creator (images, videos, documents, etc.)
This guide concerns Site Creator, an Infomaniak tool for creating sites offering, among other things, a library of media (images, videos, documents, etc.).
To access Site Creator:
- open the Manager (manager.infomaniak.com)
- go to Web Hosting
- if necessary click on the hosting/domain name concerned
- in the left side menu click on Site Creator
- click on Customize my site
The library is accessible from the lower part of the left side menu, under Files.
These media will be available to you when you edit your pages and wish to insert content.
Organize your files, folders and subfolders
Please note that you cannot move or rename files.
You cannot delete a folder if it is not completely empty.
Consequently think about the organization of your media and their tree structure if possible before you create your site.
Create a new folder
Use the action menu at the bottom right of the window:
Load a new file in the library
Click Send File to browse your hard drive and upload the desired files:
Open image editor
Hover over an image in the library and click on the pencil to access the image editor:
Find and use free images
In the left sidebar of the library is a menu item leading to royalty-free images that you can insert into your library to enhance your site.
Protect your content
Click on Settings in the left sidebar and then on General Settings.
At the bottom is an option that once enabled disallows visitors to right click on your site.
Problem downloading images/files
Try to upload JPGs or PNGs that are as light as possible.
If you upload an image, it is not necessary to upload images larger than 1000px wide.
Make sure your files are not in "300DPI" resolution, you don't need it on your website, it's only for printing.
If you're trying to upload files directly from your camera, try resizing them before uploading.
If you upload a photo from your iPhone, it may be in HEIF/HEIC format, which is not supported - try converting it to JPG first.
