Find the gallery that you want to add files to and select the File Folder icon and then click on the Add Files button.

In this example, we will create a new gallery from scratch and then upload an image file directly to that gallery.

Once you access your Cincopa account click on ‘+ New Gallery’ option in the upper right hand side of your screen.

Now choose a template for the new gallery and select USE THIS TEMPLATE option that appears when hovering over a template.

You will then be redirected to the Gallery settings page where you will have many customization options for your gallery. It will show a default image list as we have not yet uploaded any images.
