Introduction

In this lab step, you will upload an image gallery to the S3 bucket you created previously.

The gallery is composed of:

  • Set of image files
  • HTML page that lists each image
  • JavaScript and CSS files for enhancing the image visualization

 

Instructions

1. Download the demo gallery to your computer and unzip it:

Exact instructions for unzipping will depend upon your operating system. In most operating systems when you open the file you are asked if you want to unzip or extract it.

After extracting, you should see a folder or directory on your local file system called gallery.

 

2. Navigate to S3 in the AWS Management Console.

 

3. In the list of buckets, click on the name of the bucket you created previously:
