I have an existing feature class that I want to use for my short list story map. Once I have the app made, is there not a way to drag and drop the pictures in from my computer? I only see the option for Google, Flicker and web url.
The option to drag/drop images directly into the Story Map Shortlist Builder was added on March 1st. Try it out and see if it works OK for you.
