Movable Type offers an interface for uploading files onto your web server for use on your site. You can upload files to your Local Site Path or any directory beneath it.

To upload a file click the Upload File button in the Weblog Toolbar. Choose the file you wish to upload from your system and decide where you’d like to upload it. For example, if you are uploading an image, and you typically keep all of your images in an images directory under your Local Site Path, enter “images” into the text box. After choosing the destination for the uploaded file click the Upload button.

If a file with the same name already exists in the destination directory you will be asked if the file should be overwritten. If you choose No, the file you uploaded will be not be stored, allowing you to rename it locally and upload again.
