Currently the shortlist beta only allows images to be linked thru a URL or some third party image hosting. Will it be updated to allow for imaging uploading like in other story maps?
We have now updated Story Map Shortlist (beta) to include the ability to upload images from your computer directly into your Shortlist. It was released as part of last night's ArcGIS Online update. For more info about that option and other new features in the Story Map apps, please see: What’s New in Story Maps (March 2017) | ArcGIS Blog
Also please let us know if you have questions or comments about this new option.
Thanks for the feedback. Currently you can use pics in Flickr and Picasa (existing pics only - closed to new pics), and also pics that are referenced via URL. We are very keen to add support for direct image uploading into the Story Map Shortlist, the same as you can in Story Map Tour. We don't have a planned release date for that yet though.
