Delete multiple images from the image library at once

It would be nice to be able to delete multiple images/documents, etc in my library. Only being able to delete one at a time is very time consuming.

Just want to keep my library (and your storage) clean of clutter.

Thanks!

Hi Brandi! I chatted with a product owner about the work she’s doing around image management. We may be fitting this in, but it would only be for images so far, not documents.

I’m marking this idea as Planned but editing the subject line to reflect it’s only planned for images.

That's awesome!! Thank you Katie!
Just wanted to give support for this idea! I'm trying to de-clutter our images now and this option would be very helpful.

Would be great to have a feature that enables a user to simultaneously delete multiple images in the image/photo gallery. Thx.

Chiming in that I would love this feature. I have to cull our image library frequently, and it's always a task I dread doing.

Adding my support for a multiple "select and delete" function, too! Love this application and how it helps us connect with our alumni. This function would easily improve our organization of our respective image galleries. Thank you!

Please, please add this feature soon. Between re-branding and user/ operator impatience, we have more than 100 images in an account that need to be removed. Tedious hardly begins to describe the  pain process. Not to mention, as I delete one image, Emma returns me to the top of the list, and I have to go back to my original place and start over. Lesson learned - cull frequently!!

I'd love this feature too. I need to delete a bunch of images, but it's time consuming.

I second all of this conversation!! It would be wonderful to be able to delete multiple images at a time and to be able to stay at the same location on the list of images when you delete one. So time consuming to delete one, scroll back to where you were to delete the next one. I will be thrilled, no ecstatic, when you have added this feature!!

I would love this feature! I don't often have time to sit and delete images, and I have a couple years of images in my library, some large files. This is slowing down my uploading time for new images, and most of the images I use are 1-time use only. This would be so helpful! I work in a very small marketing department for a large natural foods store, and my time is precious.

IMAGE FOLDER: When are you ever going to make an efficient way to clean out our Image folder?? Honestly, put a darn checkbox next to the images and a mass delete button..SOMETHING! It's egregious that nothing has ever been done. Please do something.. It's a time suck for me to sit and click each one, load the delete, wait for it,...not an efficient way to handle managing content Emma!

Hi Brandi! Last I chatted with the Product Team, we were looking at the end of Q1 or sometime in Q2. That timeline is fluid and could still fluctuate, and it definitely won't be by year's end.

I agree as well. We have hundreds of images that need to be deleted and I don't have the time to go through one by one. Thank you for addressing this quickly.

Just showing some support for this idea. Another useful tool would be able to replace images (i.e. update a logo without having to replace the url link everywhere)
Thanks so much for all your efforts

Hi Kiko! Thanks for sharing your support here. :) Are you up for creating a new conversation for the ability to update an image without having to replace the link? I think I'm understanding what you want to see, but any extra details or a use case you could share would be great!

Hi, we too would love to see the option of selecting multiple images at once to delete them faster. Thanks.

Yes, please allow the deletion of multiple images or at least do away with the confirmation.. Because after you confirm, and it deletes, it brings you back to the beginning of your photo list and you lose your place. Very frustrating.

Hello there! You can now rename and delete multiple images at once from within the drag & drop editor.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Is it possible to mass-delete images from the image library?.

One of our subaccounts wants to clear out old images from their image library, but have been deleting the images one by one (they've been going to Campaigns > Images > then deleting from there). Is there a way to select all, or multiple images at once to delete?

Is there a way to recover deleted photos. I seem to have deleted my entire photo library?
