Joomla 3.0 Tutorial – How to Upload Images to a Subfolder

by Elaine on May 11, 2013

This Joomla 3.0 Tutorial will show you how to upload an image to a subfolder in your Media Manager.  By default, if you click on the upload button, Joomla will upload images to the root media folder.  If you are using a control panel with a file manager, you will find your media files under the ‘images’ folder.

In my example, I am uploading my CmsMind logo into the Banners subfolder.  Below are the steps to achieve this:

Overview of How to Upload Images to Subfolder:

  1. Go to Media Manager
  2. Click on ‘Banners’ Subfolder in Media Manager
  3. Click on ‘Upload’ in Media Manager
  4. Start Upload Image to Subfolder in Media Manager
  5. See Image in Subfolder

Steps:

1.  Go to Media Manager

Joomla 3.0 Media Manager is where you manage the images you upload using the Joomla 3.0 administrator panel.  You can also change the maximum upload limit and other settings as well.
