Once you have uploaded a media file, you can easily access it to make changes. You even have the option to save changes as a new file within your media gallery.

  1. Select the three-dots beneath the image preview (or placeholder) for the file you wish to edit.
  2. Select Edit from the options listed.
  3. Make your edits:
    • If editing a video, you will only be able to make changes to the media Details (e.g., Alt Text, Title, and Caption).
    • If editing an image or GIF, you can make changes to the media Details (e.g., Alt Text, Title, and Caption) as well as the size and orientation of the image or GIF. Use the Crop and Rotate icons above the image/GIF to make your desired changes, then select Apply.
  4. Choose whether to Save the original media or save your changes as a new file (Save as Copy).

Delete Media Individually or in Bulk

You can delete media from the media gallery either individually or in bulk.

  Note: Deleting is a permanent action and cannot be undone. Deleting media will remove the media from wherever it is used on your website. If you wish to "undo" this action, you will need to reupload the original media and manually add it back to the desired places on your website.

  1. Select the three-dot icon on the right side of the media tile.
  2. Select Delete from the options listed.
  3. Review and confirm your action by selecting Delete on the pop-up.

To delete media files in bulk:

  1. Select the checkbox in the top-right corner of each media file you wish to delete.
  2. Select the checkbox drop-down in the top-right corner of the media gallery (to the left of the Upload button).
  3. Select Delete from the options listed.
  4. Review and confirm your action by selecting Delete All on the pop-up.

Download a Media File to Your Device

  1. Select the three-dot icon on the right side of the media tile for the media you wish to download.
  2. Select Download from the options listed.
  3. The file will automatically download to the default Downloads location on your device.

Search and Sort Media Files
