Edit Assets in Asset Bank

  • Updated

You can edit an asset directly in your Asset Bank without re-uploading it. Using Batch Edit, you can save time if you make the same change to multiple assets.

 

Single Edit

  1. Navigate to your Asset Bank
  2. Select the asset you would like to edit.
  3. In the Info Tab, click.  Screenshot 2023-12-01 at 11.30.57 AM.png
    • You can also use one of these shortcuts to skip directly to the edit window.
  4. You can edit the asset's name/ title, description, metaproperties, tags, related assets, copyright, advanced rights, custom fields, and collections here.
    • Metaproperties not configured as main filters are available under the Custom Fields section.
  5. Once edits are complete, click Save.

Batch Edit

If you are making the same change to multiple assets, we recommend Batch Edit. You can also apply filters or use the search bar to narrow your asset results. For example, if all assets need to be tagged with the same tag(s), you can add the tag, which will be applied to all selected assets.

You can batch edit up to 1500 assets at the same time. If batch editing exceeds 1500, we recommend using the API

  1. Navigate to your Asset Bank
  2. Select the assets you want to edit, and either select Screenshot 2024-05-13 at 1.29.36 PM.png or select the E key on your keyboard. 
  3. The batch editing screen will open, where you can see your assets' thumbnails. 
  4. You can see the thumbnails of up to 20 assets.Screenshot 2024-05-13 at 2.19.08 PM.png
    • Contact Support to increase the number of thumbnails to 50. 
    • Not all available fields will appear under the thumbnail; if you want a field to appear under the thumbnail, select next to the Metaproperty.
  5. By default, all assets are selected; however, you can deselect the assets if you do not want to apply the change to an asset by selecting Screenshot 2024-05-13 at 2.20.54 PM.pngnext to the asset.
  6. You must select more than 20 assets to edit to see the thumbnail of each asset.Screenshot 2024-05-13 at 2.17.19 PM.png
  7. In the sidebar, you can edit the title, description, metaproperties, tags, related assets, copyright, and advanced rights and add assets to collections.
  8. All of the changes applied in the sidebar will be applied to all of the assets selected. 
    • Metaproperties not configured as main filters are available under the Custom Fields section.
    • Even if all assets in a batch have the same metaproperties, you must manually reselect the Metaproperty Options when bulk editing to activate dependencies. The bulk editor does not automatically display dependencies as it does not assume all assets have the same Metaproperty Options selected.
  9. You can edit an asset by selecting the corresponding option beneath the asset's thumbnail. Changes made under the thumbnail will only affect that specific asset.Screenshot 2024-05-13 at 2.20.38 PM.png
  10. Once you have made the edits, click Save Selected Files.
