While using Cloudinary, all your images, videos, and other raw files are uploaded to Cloudinary. You can use our Media Library web interface to browse through and manage your uploaded media assets and generated transformations. In addition, you can use methods from the Upload and Admin APIs, which offer methods for managing, organizing, and creating media assets.
