Question about image folder

Question about image folder

I've been peering into the SQL data tables for PowerStore and the directory structure. It appears that the images uploaded through the CMS system are stored in the images folder. My question pertains to whether one can use an ftp client to bulk upload images for future use to that folder or whether the CMS system tracks each individual image that's uploaded in a data table and therefore must be uploaded one at a time inside the PowerStore software.

Is it ok to do a bulk upload outsite the software and then use the browse to server to link to the image for placement on product detail pages?

images uploaded in the cms system are uploaded to:
imagesupload/cms_files/

you can manually upload images to this folder and the cms system will pick them up

Yes that will work. The system does store information about images in the database to speed it up, but if it finds an image that isn't in the database it automatically inspects it.
