Store and manage media files on the inwise system in the “Media Area.” It’s an easy-to-manage web interface, and you can access it directly from the system without a campaign login or edit.
Here, you can upload different files and images in any format and edit them.

After logging into the system, click on the area media icon on the right side of the menu bar at the top of the page.

Media area
You can upload media files to the media area in different formats, such as BMP, PNG, GIF, JPG, etc.
We recommend only uploading images up to 800kb, but the system supports images up to 1.5MB.
* The size of the image affects the length of time it takes for it to download to your computer or phone.

Abiding by these conditions will make your editor’s job much easier, and it will guarantee optimal visibility of the mailing in all portals.

Upload Images

Select “Upload Images” (2).

Upload image
On the panel that opens, you can choose from the following options:
Import from URL (1)– Upload image from URL.

Image dragging (3) – Drag the image from a folder on your PC directly to the Media area.

After selecting the image or images, the system will upload the files.

In the media area, you can create a GIF file (a short video file that runs in the form of a loop that transmits the message in an animated way).
Select the relevant images by checking V, and clicking on the GIF icon. You can change the speed settings for each image in seconds.

To search for a file, click on the “Files” tab, and type the name of the file into the search box.

Sorting and tagging files

You can sort and filter images and files in the media area by tagging them. This sorting allows for easy orientation and convenient system operation. To tag an image or multiple images, highlight the relevant images (1-2) and click on the tag icon (3).


In the panel that opens, you can add the image(s) to an existing tag or create a new tag.

View images and files

You can arrange the images or files in the media area in two ways:
