Managing Image Files

Images can either be uploaded to the channel or to the organization. For further information, see Specifying the Image Upload Location for Channels.

Images, as well as other static content, are locale-specific. That is, prior to creating the target directory structure and uploading files, you must select the target locale.

Note: The directory structure as well as the actual images can be different for each locale.
