  • go to a thumbnail image representing the item on the My Media home page or on a Collection page
  • click the '+' or plus sign icon in the thumbnail, and a Collection popup window appears
  • pick an existing Collection for your item within the popup window, or create a new Collection
  • click Add to complete adding the item into the designated Collection

2)  Add multiple items at one time to a Collection
  • click the checkbox (lower right corner) on multiple thumbnail representations displayed on the My Media home page or on a Collection page

  • click Add to complete adding the item into the designated Collection

3)  Upload media items directly into a collection
  • click on the Upload tab (in the top navigational header) to go to the Upload page
