Asset categories are created in the Content section.
As shown in the visual below, the categories appear in the Content > Home > Asset library folder (node).
There are two asset category types (or hierarchy levels):
You can have as many Categories sitting within the Asset library folder node as you wish, and as many Sub categories within each Category.
It is your choice how you wish to categorise and structure your Asset library.
To add a new category:
For additional information on the save options, view the Various saving and publishing options page.
Now that you’ve completed your category structure, you can assign them to an asset.
To assign categories to an asset:
^ Both categories and subcategories can be selected, however, if categories contain subcategories, please select the subcategory only (it is not necessary to select both). Therefore, only select the top-level category when there are no contained subcategories.
To batch update categories across multiple assets, view Batch modifying assets.
