    @Jason Goncalves,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Assets can only be added directly from within the Media Library under your account. New assets can be added to your collections by choosing the Add to collection option. Start typing the name of the collection you want to add the assets to. When you see it, select it and the assets will be added to it.

    For more information please take a look here: https://support.cloudinary.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011372060-How-to-Use-Collections-to-Organize-Your-Assets

    Best regards,
    Jay

    Thanks Jay. So Collections aren't intended to be used via the APIs? I was hoping to let users on our site add images to their boards, kind of like they do on Pinterest. Collections seemed like an ideal way of managing that.

    Hi Jason,

    Collections provide a way to collaborate and share your assets internally, between your Media Library users. You can also share the collections with external groups that do not have access to your Cloudinary account, however, they will only be able to view and download the assets.

    Hope this better clarifies.

    Best regards,

    Millie
