Uploading Assets in the Library Backend
The backend of a Library is the one you create under the Libraries tab within your Brand. This is where you can upload the assets without exposing them to other users just yet.
When in the backend of the Library, you can upload both assets and folders, organize them within the library, as well as add metadata and tags. The upload itself can be completed by drag-and-drop of folders or assets into the library, or by clicking on the “+ New” button in the top right corner to select files from your computer.
The same applies to Projects.
You can invite other collaborators through the Team Icon in the Power Bar on the left-hand side.
*Note that only invited users will have access to the backend of the Media Library and only Editors and Owners will be able to contribute or upload assets and folders.
Can I upload Assets in the Library Frontend?
It is not possible to upload assets in the Library frontend. The frontend of a Library is the "consumer view" where all the users who have access to the Style Guide can view and download the images.

Uploading: Timing and Storage
If your assets are stuck in "processing" status or are taking some time to upload -
Please consider that larger files can take some time until they are uploaded and processed. It also depends on which and how many assets or folders are being processed at that time.
If you have enough storage to upload your selected assets or folders, then no size limit exists. The storage can be checked by an Account Admin on the Usage page (/usage).
If you are not able to upload it or if it is stuck on “processing” for a long time you can reach out to the Frontify Support Team.
