How do I download one of my Media Gallery files?

You must edit a video, audio, or image file you own in My Media or Media Gallery to enable the option to download it.

Note: To edit a file that someone else uploaded to Media Gallery, you would need to ask the owner to add you to the file as a collaborator with Co-Editor permission.

Important: If your video, audio, or image file is published in a UVACollab site's Media Gallery, all site participants will be able to download it once you enable the download option. To prevent others from downloading your file, first unpublish it from galleries where it appears.

Go to Home.

When you first log into UVACollab, you are placed in your Home site.  If you are viewing another UVACollab site, select the Home tab in the favorites bar at the top of the screen, or in your My Sites list, to access it.
