When not to use the Import Tool
Don't use the Import Tool to mass upload photoset images. The Import Tool assigns a default content type to anything you upload and photoset images require a special content type in order to include captions.
A document is considered accessible if it meets certain technical criteria and can be used by people with disabilities. It’s important to make sure your documents are accessible before uploading them into Cascade.
