Once you are logged in an "Edit images" button will appear wherever there are images being displayed on the site:

Clicking on that button will open a dialog that allows to browse all images on the site by tags:

The "Upload" button in that dialog allows you to select a local file and upload it. The image will automatically be tagged with the current selection of tags.


What are image tags?

Images can be tagged in order to identify contents of the image, e.g. which characters appear in the image, which locations appear, which episode the image is from etc.

Examples:

,
Location:Stars Hollow

Image tags also determine where an image is shown on the website, see: How do I make an image show up on a page?
