Adding Items in Omeka

Adding an Item in Omeka Screenshot

This is the caption.

Every image in your exhibit should be uploaded as an "Item" in Omeka. When you add an item, you can include information about it, including a title, creator, publisher, etc. Any field you don't fill out on the item page will not display on the public version of your page.

Make sure you mark your item as "public" if you want your classmates and others to see it.

Also be sure to add each item to a Collection.

Attaching Files

In addition to creating a title and other information about your item, you also need to make sure you add the file of the image. Go to the Files tab, and browse to your image to upload it. If you found it on the web, be sure to include a link to the original on the item information page, and download it.
