After creating a SharePoint site, you would need a central place where you will store all the assets needed for your site: photos, graphics, audios, videos, etc.
The SharePoint’s built-in Asset Library app will serve you well. The feature allows for thumbnail views and automatically generates metadata for your files, giving you a better user experience when browsing and searching.
Unlike other types of document libraries, Asset Library gives you more robust functionalities to improve not only the storage but also the management of your files.
If you have larger files such as videos, take a few minutes to enquire from your administrator about the file size limits for uploading. Typically, the default file size threshold is set to 10 GB in SharePoint 2016 server and 15 GB for SharePoint Online.
The short video below demonstrates the steps for creating an Asset Library and uploading files to it.
