Drupal system has powered various types of websites such as community web portals, discussion sites, corporate web sites, Intranet applications, personal web sites or blogs, aficionado sites, E-commerce applications, resource directories, social networking sites.   There are so many things that you can work on with your website.  You can upload files such as music, videos, pictures, etc. on your websites.

Drupal system has an upload module that allows users to upload files to the website.  Uploading files to a website is important for members of a community; in as much as community websites are for sharing information.  Administrators also find upload module as useful as they try to connect the uploaded files to a node or a page.

Permission to upload files is granted by system administrators.  Users can choose the post types, which can take attachments on the content types settings page. Administrators provides each user the permission to customize the setting as to the allowed file size of uploads, and the dimension of image files.
