Adding Files in ePortfolios

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. The process of adding files is broken down into two parts: adding the file to your file storage and adding the file to a page.

Adding Files to File Storage

To add files to your Foliotek file storage area while working inside a portfolio, click on the Files tab and then the orange Add Files button to the left side of the screen.  To do this outside of a portfolio, click the Files link in the top black bar to go to the file manager.

Add Files 1A dialog box will now appear with options for My Computer and Web Resource.  To add files that are on your computer, choose My Computer, click on the upload button, use the browser to select the file(s) you wish to add.

Upload FileOnce you find your file and select it, you will see the file appear in the dialog box. You can remove it, add another file, or click on the checkmark to finish adding the file.

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.

Web Resources

You may now click the Add Web Resource(s) button and the resource will be available in your file storage area.

After Your Upload

Your file storage area will now have Uploads selected.  To view all files again, instead of your recent uploads, click All in the tab list.
