Your asset library gives you a complete overview of the files uploaded in your project.

See how to manage files in the asset library inside the app.

Every time a content contributor adds an image to a Rich text element or an asset to an Asset element, this new file will be stored in the project’s asset library.

In the asset library, you can:

  • Upload a new asset via drag & drop or by selecting a file on your machine
  • Search assets
  • View asset details
  • Download assets
  • Delete assets

Searching in the asset library

Find the assets you want by typing your query into the filter field. The search looks at asset file names including the file extension.

Viewing asset details

Click any asset in the asset library to open its details. In the asset details, you can write an asset description that will be used as alt text for images and view the asset's metadata in the right panel.

The metadata includes:

  • File name and extension
  • File size
  • Image width
  • Image height
  • Date of upload
  • A list of content items (and their language variants) in which the asset is used

Deleting assets

You can delete an asset only if it's not used within any content item.

To delete an asset:

  1. From the app menu, choose Content & Assets.
  2. Click the Assets tab.
  3. Click an asset to open it.
  4. Click More actions (⋮).
  5. Click Delete.

Restoring assets

When you restore a revision of a content item, which uses an asset that was deleted from the asset library, you will restore the used asset as well. The restored asset will appear in the asset library.

To revert to an earlier version of a content item, see Restoring revisions
