Image Upload versus the Multi-image upload options

There are two ways to import pictures into the Builder for the Gallery: Image Upload and Multi-image upload. The multi-image upload option uses Java and may require permission from your computer operating system in order to operate. The Image Upload option should have no compatibility issues but you can upload only 5 images at a time. Each option allows you to resize images as you upload them, but the multi-image option is limited to fewer sizes for resizing compared to the image upload option. This is because you can upload many more images with the multi-image upload option.

By default the 1024×768 image resize option is used.
