You can see form for adding new images. Only 'Choose File' field is required. Click on the button and choose the necessary image to upload from the local directory. 'Title' and 'Description' fields are optional, but it is useful to insert unique name and some description in order to differentiate your new images. Image’s ID will be created from title. If title is not specified, ID will be the same as a name of the uploaded image.
