Uploading a Zip Archive

Here are the steps for importing a zip file of images directly into Cascade. This method is useful if you have multiple folders worth of images you’d like to upload and want to maintain the folder structure, as it will be recreated within your site when the zip archive is unpacked.

  1. Zip up the set of images.
  2. Select the Cascade folder where the images will be uploaded. If you don't have a storage folder create one.
  3. Click Add Content >> Image from the top navigation menu in Cascade.
  4. Scroll down and drag-and-drop or choose a zip file from your computer.
  5. Select 'Yes' to extract and save all of the contents into the current folder.
  6. Click 'Unpack' and you will land on a Zip Archive Report that displays the items unpacked successfully or with errors.
  7. Close. Then refresh your view of the folder to see the files listed.
