How to add an image

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:

cd NAME-OF-FILE-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:

ls

You should see the name of the image in the list shown.

Move up the hierarchy through directories:

cd ../

Check the status and you should see your image’s name in red:

git status

Add your changes:

git add NAME-OF-YOUR-IMAGE

Check the status and you should see your image’s name in green:

git status

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.
