Images (listing photos) are displayed by default on the right side of the Edit Listing page as a vertical column called the Media widget. The Media widget also contains sections for VTours and Files. Clicking on any of the section names will un-collapse that section display the selected media type. The Media Widget is a collapsible tool that allows you to upload, modify or delete images for your listings.


When Images is selected, it displays thumbnails of any images you have previously uploaded for that listing, and you have the options to upload, delete or manage individual photos.


Upload a Picture - This option will be available if you have less than the maximum allowed images (or files) currently uploaded for your listing. This max number of images per listing is set in Site Config. To upload a photo click on the "Upload a Picture" button. A popup window with two tabs will appear.


Upload File Tab

Options on this tab will allow you to navigate to, and upload multiple files according to the maximum allowed images setting in Site Config.



Link to External Photo Tab

Selecting this tab will provide input fields to specify the URLs to remote images you wish to link to, up to the number of allowed images that you have set in Site Config. These images will NOT be stored within your Open-Realty® website, these images will be linked only.



Once your photos (or files) have been uploaded, you can further manage them by clicking on a photo, or if you have more than one photo you can also arrange their display order by dragging them to their desired (ascending) order, top = first photo
