Blugold Insider: Using Image Libraries and Galleries


Options for Images


There are several options for images in Blugold Insider. The first is found within your own site collection or subsite, and the second is a campus-wide repository maintained by MyBlugold support staff.

  • The Images library can be used to upload and share image for your site or subsite.

  • The MyBlugold Image Gallery contains a selection of images, provided by MyBlugold support staff, for use on any MyBlugold site.
