      Zip upload
    A message indicates that the files are uploaded to the database, and the images list is sorted by updated date in descending order (the uploaded images appear first).
    • If the .zip file contains a folder structure, the resulting image names are the path name with underscores in place of the slashes. For example, if the .zip contains myimages/image1.gif then the resulting image is named myimages_image1.gif.
    • Image names cannot exceed 100 characters in length, including folder structure. Files with excessively long names are rejected.
    • Uploads are logged in the system. View system logs to see whether files are uploaded or rejected.
