Easier way to delete large number of images in Library

When I have 400 files and I want to delete some of these, I appear to need to click through many many screens to get anywhere. This is just one problem in the user experience that desperately needs changing. A list of 100 would be more acceptable.

Add a 'Show ALL' button. Rather than make us 'Show more' only.

It would be nice to have an option to go right to the oldest library items. Rather than Show More, Show More, Show more, etc. Get the idea!

Could you make it possible to have the option of listing library items in reverse order of date added? That would make it easier to delete the oldest items. I know we have that option for our "publications," so maybe it wouldn't be that hard at your end to have that option for the library, too. Thanks for your consideration.

There should be a way to get to the oldest image first instead of the most recent. When trying to delete images, it is painstaking to do it the way the files are set up. Thanks for your attention.

Directions say that a box will appear when you click on an image, giving you an option to delete it. When I right click on an image, the box only offers open, save, copy, etc.--no delete. Then the directions say you can simply drag the image to the trash icon--but I do not have one at the top or at the lower left corner of the page. I need to delete some old images!

Out of storage room but no way to sort in chronological order to be able to delete oldest images first without scrolling through thousands of images. thanks

Funny, I just started to work on the image library this morning and also can't see a way to sort these chronologically from oldest to newest. Either I'm missing something or this is clearly a problem with Constant Contact!!!

I wish there was a way to order images from old to new so that I could easily delete outdated images from our account.

Please make it easier to delete several photos. Currently the system takes you back to the beginning. You can only do one at a time. Also it would be preferable to have a search in the library, on the left, so you can find a photo on the fly while preparing documents.

Is there a way to delete old images from the library in bulk. At least have the ability to show list from oldest to newest.

Hi @EpicS9 how are you looking to delete images in bulk? Currently you must continue to click 'Show More' to view 10 more images which you can select to delete. With that said, we have merged your post into a larger thread focused on this idea.

Please make it easier to manage items in the Library. First off, at least let the user sort the items to make it easier to delete the old items. Any advanced filtering (by date, by type, etc) would be nice, too. When you start approaching your limit (which I am) it is nearly impossible to delete old content because the library only shows you the most recent items. To view items that are a year or older would necessitate hitting the "Show More" button hundreds of times and waiting for the server calls - I don't have the patience for that. Two gigabytes seems like a generous allowance, but after 4-5 years of sending e-mail campaigns with attachments it becomes necessary to clean up older items. It is maddening to do so in the current setup. Please fix it or remove the Library storage limit.

Hi @ZackH14 thanks for sharing this feedback with us. We have merged your post into a larger thread focused on having the ability to delete files from the Library in bulk. With that said, having a larger storage limit is a feature request with a thread of its own. We would recommend commenting directly on that thread to share you need for this feature as well.

Hi, I need to be able to sort the images in my library by date so I can go through and delete old files. Please add this feature! The current process of having to keep clicking "Show more" is severely cumbersome and is taking me forever just to get to the bottom of my list, and I'm sure once I do and start to delete, the page will refresh and I'll have to repeat this very long process. Sorting would be MUCH easier. Thanks
