Deploy Pictures to Off-Chain Storage
Currently Gutenberg does not support the upload of NFT pictures to IPFS/Arweave, (we are actively working on this feature). Thus, creators will have to rely on deploying directly with platforms such as Pinata or NFT.Storage. The below example uses Pinata as its platform, but these steps are applicable to other trusted platforms. To the deploy the collection pictures with Pinata:
- 1.Put all of your NFT items into a single folder named after the collection
- 2.Ensure the pictures are named numerically in ascending order (e.g. from
2000.jpegfor a collection with 2000 NFTs)
- 3.Creating an account with Pinata
- 4.Go to
Uploadto upload a folder
- 5.Name it after the name of your NFT collection
- 6.Retrieve the
CIDof the upload.
Your NFT urls will now be:
CIDis the identifier of the upload and
NFT-NUMBERis the index number of each NFT.
