Uploading a Slideshow Image


Now that you've selected your images and prepared them, you are ready to upload them to Cascade.

All images are uploaded to the "_uploads/images" folder. Since the slideshow image upload creates additional sizes, it's recommended you create a separate folder within the "images" folder to hold your slideshow images.


Text Instructions

Naming Convention

  • Keep it short (few words).
  • No special characters, no spaces (use hyphens between words).
  • Cannot start with a number.

Note: Be sure you've followed the naming conventions above and rename them prior to uploading to Cascade.

Image Temporarily Uploaded

  1. System Name: The default text has now been changed to reflect the image name.
  2. The image has been temporarily loaded and displayed with the width and height displayed.
  3. You can make minor changes at this point, such as resizing, rotating, etc., but we highly suggest this all be done before uploading into Cascade.
