Media Library

The Media Library is where you store your favourite images for use later. Upload your logos, photos, and other images for adding to the content you produce.

Image types:

  • JPEG / JPG: This is the most common image format for digital images. These files tend to have more compression, thus reducing quality. Ensure the image you are uploading is sharp and in high definition.
  • PNG: Although not as compressed PNG images are data-rich and sharp. PNG images are highly recommended to create high quality and engaging content.

Here are some great sites for obtaining high-quality free images:

Adding Video

Adding videos to your content is easy. While there are lots of video hosting and streaming platforms out there, we use YouTube as the gold standard.

To embed a video, drag & drop the YouTube content block into your Post or Page. Copy and paste the ID number of the video into the YouTube Video ID field.

For example, the video at the top of this page has the following ID:

  • https://youtu.be/TpRYrg3Djdc

YouTube channels can be made private so the videos you use in Lane are not visible to the entire internet. Although if your video goes viral, our hats off to you!

Eye catching media paired with interesting and relevant content can help create an engaging workplace experience for the modern age.
