Editing Media Items

There are instances where you may need to edit an item that is in your Media Library. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • You need to re-crop an image that was already uploaded.
  • You need to swap out an image for a new image.
  • You need to add a new tag for sorting purposes.
  • You need to swap out a document for a newer version (only if you linked to the Media item, not the actual file).

Follow the instructions below to learn how to edit a media item.

Step 1: Go to the Media Library

Hover over Content. Then, click Media.

Step 2: Locate the Media Item

To find the Media Item, you can either scroll down until you find it or you can user the filtering options. You can filter for a media item by the following:

  • Media Name (i.e., the title for the media item)
  • Related Tags: These are relationship terms that can be created to associated similar media items with each other (e.g., creating a tag called "2021" could be associated with all documents that were updated in 2021). Read more about relationships and tagging in our Relationships and Tags tutorial.
  • Media Type (videos, images, or documents)
  • Items per page

The media item should be updated on wherever it is displayed. (Remember, this does not apply if you've linked directly to a file; you'll need to update file links. This only applies to Media items i.e., media cards and media links).
