The following are the steps to add images to your repository in GitLab:
Find the image that you’d like to add.
In your computer files, find the GitLab project to which you'd like to add the image (you'll find it as a regular file). Click on every file until you find exactly where you'd like to add the image. There, paste the image.
Go to your shell, and add the following commands:
Add this command for every directory that you'd like to open:
Create a new branch:
git checkout -b NAME-OF-BRANCH
Check if your image was correctly added to the directory:
You should see the name of the image in the list shown.
Move up the hierarchy through directories:
Check the status and you should see your image’s name in red:
Add your changes:
git add NAME-OF-YOUR-IMAGE
Check the status and you should see your image’s name in green:
Add the commit:
git commit -m “DESCRIBE COMMIT IN A FEW WORDS”
Now you can push (send) your changes (in the branch NAME-OF-BRANCH) to GitLab (the git remote named 'origin'):
git push origin NAME-OF-BRANCH
Your image will be added to your branch in your repository in GitLab. Create a Merge Request to integrate your changes to your project.
