When image files are selected in the tree view, a preview of the image is displayed in the main window. This image is resized to fit the display area but you can click the image to zoom to full resolution. Other file types will show an icon representing the selected file type.

The media URL area will display the URL to access the selected file. This can be used to insert the image into your HTML code or link to the file. All file types will show the file size and the date the file was uploaded to the media library. Image files will also show the width and height dimensions of the selected image.

The following folders are created by default in the media library. Follow the steps below to create additional sub-folders.

  • Shared Media: Media stored in this folder is accessible to everyone who can create messages in your Listrak account.

  • My Media: Media stored in this folder is only available to the account that uploaded the media. This media will display in emails for all users, but only the uploader can view it in the media library.

  • Recently Deleted: Deleted files will appear in this folder for 30 days after deletion. Deleted files do not count toward your stored media amount.

  • Admin: This folder will only appear for users who have Admin permissions in the account. As the admin of the account, you'll have access to other users' My Media folders that will appear within the admin folder.
