How to move to a folder

To move an image or a video from one folder to another, hover the mouse over the element you want to move, click on the three dots, then select Move to. From here, you can see a list with all your folders and move the element to the folder you want.

A folder with a full icon contains at least one picture or video, and a folder with an empty icon has no images or video.

Important: Folders work for both personal and team uploaded images and videos.

In the Team uploads tab, you can find all the uploaded images and videos from your team, and from there, you can create folders, rename, delete or move elements from a folder to another folder, following the same steps as for the My uploads tab.
