While using Visme, you can easily track down all your files and fully manage your images and media assets using My Files. This feature gives complete control over uploading, managing, editing and organizing your assets and allows the user to:
1- Add new images and other assets from your computer (JPG, PNG, SVG and even PDFs and animated GIF files)
2- Perform actions within our media library (aka My Files) in bulk such as add labels, add files to canvas, move files to a folder, and download or delete many files at once
3- Access and modify the file settings
4- Organize your assets into labels and/or folders
How to access:
Once in your Visme dashboard, click on the “My Files” button located in the sidebar along the left side of your screen to access. (Note: My Files can also be accessed within the Editor when a project is open in Edit mode.)
How to upload Files:
Once you have accessed “My Files”, a box will open and you’ll see, among other things, an “Arrow” besides the “Upload” button. Click on it to move forward.
A dropdown menu will appear in which you can choose from where to upload the file between your PC and other online storage networks you may use. Select the source and then select the file you want to upload (JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG, PDF, MP4, WAV or MP3).
How to perform actions in bulk:
Once you have accessed “My Files”, use the checkboxes on the left-hand side to select the files that you would like to perform your bulk actions on.
Then, click the ‘Bulk Actions’ button and select the Bulk Action you would like to perform between “Add Label”, “Add to Canvas”, “Move to Folder” or “Download”
If what you want is to delete the files, click on the “Trash” button located to the right of the “Bulk Actions”.
How to access to the file settings:
Once you have accessed “My Files”, hover over the file you want to access and click on the “Settings” button to move forward.
A pop-up window will appear where you can find the file information such as creation and update date, file details and where the file is being used. Also, you will be able to rename, download, manage the labels and delete the file.
How to organize your assets into folders and labels:
A- Creating and Managing Folders
Once you have accessed “My Files”, you will see different folders that group your files by type (All items, Recently Used, Documents, Images, Logos, Videos and Audio) and a “Create New Folder” button. Click on it to move forward.
Name the folder based on your own naming convention and click on the “Create” button once you are done.
Note: By default, the folder doesn’t contain any assets. You can add files in the newly created folder by selecting the folder itself and clicking on the “Upload” button or simply drag-and-drop files to the desired folder. A single asset can be organized in one folder.
B- Creating and Managing Labels
Once you have accessed “My Files”, click on the “Labels” button located beside the “Folders” button and then click on the “Create New Label” button.
Name the label based on your own naming convention and click on the “Create” button once you are done. Your new label will be added on the left panel.
There are two ways to assign labels to a file. one by simply clicking and dragging the file into the label folder.
Or, by accessing the file settings, navigate to the “manage Labels” tab and type the Label you want the file to belong to. Click on the “Close” button once you are done.
Note: An asset can have up to 10 labels. Labels are searchable within the My Files window by using the keyword/label in the search bar at the top of the My Files view.
