Overview

This tutorial will show you how to connect Imagen to an Amazon S3 storage bucket. You may have an existing S3 account that you would like to connect to, and if so you could skip ahead to step 4.

Access to your bucket will be granted through the use of an IAM user, where minimum permissions are required for Imagen to store and manage files. You can choose a storage location for each storage profile, so you could choose cheaper storage for infrequently used files.
