Adding Files

The Files area of your Foliotek Presentation account acts as a repository for any files you wish to upload.  It can store documents, images, videos, and links to websites.  There are two ways you can add files:  by emailing them to your account or directly uploading them into your account.


Adding Files via Email

You may add files to your file storage area by emailing them to  To do this, open an email, attach which ever files you would like to add to your storage and send it to  You must send the email from the email address listed in your account. If you don't, the system won't add the files to your account.

Adding Video Files

One way to conserve storage space in Foliotek is to compress video files before uploading them. There are many compression tools available, but we've found Handbrake to be a good (and free) resource. This video will show you what settings to use during the compression process to get the most use out of your Foliotek storage space.  Visit the Handbrake website to download the tool.



Adding Web Resources

To use a file that is on a different web page, you may click "Web Resource" then copy the URL into the URL box and put the name you would like the file to have in the "Name" box.  If you wish to add multiple web resources, you may click the "Add Another" link under "Name".
