You can store file-based content like documents, videos, images, and audio. Additionally, to file-based content, you can create file-less content like press kits. You can download everything back to your local desktop, with file-less content being downloaded as JSON files.

Upload Files

You upload file-based content like documents, videos, images, and audio.

  1. Drag and drop files or folders to Picturepark Content Platform for uploading. It does not need to be on a special menu. Wherever you are in Picturepark, drop your files and folders, and then the upload will start.

Uploading requires appropriate permissions. If you are not able to upload files or folders, contact your instance administrator.

When a file is uploaded or transferred into Picturepark, Picturepark chooses the most suitable File Type and provides a core set of fields (file metadata) to the newly created File item. You see entries in these fields under Extracted in each file item.

Upload Folders

Drag&Drop folders onto Picturepark, and Picturepark will upload all files inside the folder and keep the folder names available in the file metadata. Ensure that the file path of the folder and the files do not exceed 160 characters (a known Windows limitation).

Upload vs Import (Staged Upload)

Picturepark uses a staged upload process. Files are first uploaded (available to Picturepark (Storage)) then imported (Picturepark starts Rendering & Data Extraction). The process stage is visible in the notification where you see 1. xx files uploaded, then 2. xxx files imported.

In most scenarios, you will not care about the difference. Still, in the case of a lost internet connection during upload, you will find your "broken" uploads in the notification area.  You see uploaded and imported files there, so you can quickly identify the ones, you must upload again. Without transfers, you would need to check for each file if it is in Picturepark or not.
Picturepark will not process interrupted uploads (due to network issues, for example), so you don't find files from interrupted batches in the Content Browser. For those interrupted batches, you can:

  1. Retry the entire set again.

  2. You can access the contents in the notifications area and import those into the Content Browser that did not fail.
