i don't understand how to add photos to the storymap content. can someone please help. there is no documentation that i can find on this topic.
Which app template are you using: Map Journal, Map Tour, something else.
Currently, the map journal app does not allow you directly upload a photo within the app, you will need to have the photo already hosted on the web. We recommend using one of the included photo services because they will automatically create a web optimized version of all the photo so your app will load quickly. If you are not able to use an external service, the other two option would be to host the photos on your own server or upload them to ArcGIS Online as a new item and share them publicly. With both of these options, you want to compress them with photoshop or a comparable tool so they load quickly on slower internet connections. Then you can reference them with their url in the app.
Here's a blog post that describes uploading a photo to ArcGIS Online: Using photos stored in ArcGIS Online | ArcGIS Blog
