You can ‘Upload New Media’ by dropping a file where it says ‘Drop Files Here’. Clicking ‘Select Files’ opens a desktop file browser for searching and uploading files from your computer. When a file is added a progress bar will appear. When the upload is complete a link to access the media editor will appear letting you know your files are ready for use.
