How do I add new images into the database?

Step 1 - Importing the image files
First the new image files must be imported across. Browse to the location of the images and select the Image - Import Images menu option. Thumbnail files can be optionally generated at the same time. Whilst thumbnail files are not absolutely required by the database it will run significantly faster if they are available and they are required for generating a Web Site.

Step 2 - Categorising the images
These files are now "in" the database but are not yet categorised and so will only be displayed if no categories are selected. Before these images can be considered to be fully merged into the database fully they must have some categories assigned to them. Edit the image properties of each image that you wish to merge.
