Click "Media Manager Tab".
Select "Upload Images"
Choose your upload package and click continue.
Confirm your purchase and click "Buy Now". You may also enter promo codes here if applicable.
Follow instructions on entering your payment information. Note - if you do not have a paypal account you can easily create one from this window.
Browse for your images. Note - While you can select more images than you have purchased, the system will only upload the number of images you paid for. It will upload in the order they appear in the window, so if you accidentally choose more images than purchased, the images at the bottom will not import.
Click Upload and your images should show up in the server.
YOU’RE DONE. Your images will now go through our review process. Accepted images will typically appear in the gallery within two weeks of submission, but could take up to one month. You can search for your images by typing your user name in the search bar.
