Our Product Team has released to all accounts the final stage of some very exciting work in a series of image library improvements! In addition to the multi-image upload functionality described here, you can now sort your images using folders and search for images by name. Read on for more details on these new features!

+ New and improved

  • Organize images into folders within your library. It's easy to add new folders and select image from the library to add to your folders.



  • Manage and view your folders using the folder sidebar in the library.



  • Use the new search tool to quickly locate images by name.



  • We've also added the ability to drag and drop images directly into image placeholders in your mailing!



We hope this added functionality will save you some time and help you to work more efficiently in the image library! Be sure to check out our Resource Center for more details on how to utilize the image library tools when building your mailings!

Hi our sub-accounts have the option to add folders, but for some reason we can't do that in our main account. Do you have any idea why?

Hey Ash, 

Sorry that took some time.  Our developers had to work out a solution.  But we have folders up and running on that account! 

The issue we were running into is because there were so many images on the account, it is slowing down load times, so they recommended perhaps cleaning out some images that perhaps you don't need to have stored in there.  That will certainly speed up the load times for your account.  

Cheers!

Ok Thanks Grey. If we delete older photos, will that pose a problem if we try to recall old sent email campaigns?

hey Ash, so sorry this took me some time.  I had to do a little research, but it does not appear to cause any issues when bringing up old mailings after images are deleted.  Though they're not in your library, the images still populated when I made a copy of that mailing.  You should be good to go to clean up!

Hello! We are also having trouble creating folders within the image library of our main account. Is this something that is available to all?

Hey there @The Scout Guide.  It is available to all!  

You're actually going to need to access the folder creation and organization screen from within a template or mailing that you're creating.  

The folders / organization section of the image library has not been added to the Image library section there in Assets.  All you'll need to do for now is to open a template or a campaign and access the image library through an image block.

Hi - quick question.

When I add an image to a folder, it remains in the folder and then also in the main image library. Deleting the image from the main image library then also deletes it from the folder.

I'd like to organize images by folder, but it seems a bit defeating to then still see the image in the main library.

Is this intentional, or working as designed?

Main Account: YMCA of the Triangle

Thanks

Hey Liz, 

It is actually working as intended.  It may be more helpful to think of the Folders more like "tags" like you'll find in Gmail and other mail programs.  As opposed to like the folder structure of your hard drive.  

So, you can have a single image that has tags like "cat" and "orange" and "fur"... so then each Folder is more like doing a search in your library for each of those keywords and bringing you all the images tagged with that keyword.  

Does that make sense?
