Media Manager

Using the Media Manager

Media Manager allows working with image files in the App Builder. You can upload, rename, delete image files, download them and/or select them as assets for the Image component (JQM projects).

Uploading Images

To upload a new image from your hard drive, click Upload file, select the files, or drag & drop the files from your file manager.

🚧

Only image files can be uploaded with Media Manager. If you select anything but an image file, an error message will appear.

When the upload of the selected images is complete, click Back to images list.

Renaming Images

If you click the image from the list in the Media Manager, you will be able to see its size. You can edit its name in the Image properties block.

To save the new image name, click Rename.

Removing Images

To remove an image from the Media Manager click the image on the list, and in the Image properties block, click Delete: the image will be removed.

Downloading Images

To download the needed image(s) from the Media Manager click the image(s) on the list, and click Download files: the modal window will open asking to select whether you want to save your image(s) to your drive or open it (them).

Selecting Image for Image Component

In the editor, select the Image component and, on the PROPERTIES panel, click Change: the Media Manager opens. Here, you can select the image from the list or upload a new image and select it. To select the image, click it on the list, the image will then appear in the Image properties block. Then click the Apply button, (this button appears only when selecting the asset for the Image component):

Changed Image Paths

The image paths were changed in 3.0 and above libraries versions.

Old path:
/files/views/assets/image/image.jpg
New path:
/img/image.jpg

For Ionic App builder

The path to the uploaded files would be:
files/images/image_file.png.
