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.

trying to clean out my library as it's almost full - frustrating that you cannot sort or search for oldest items first to delete in chunks.

There needs to be a way to reverse sort images to get oldest to newest, find by date, etc. To make it easier to find and delete old items.

It is really difficult to delete pictures when it goes back to the original screen every time you do it. Is there an easier way to delete that I am not aware of?

Hi @stayconnected2004

 

What are the steps you're taking to delete your images? At this time for users with a large amount of images we suggest using the advanced search to look for a specific date range and continuing to click 'Show More' to view 10 more images which you can select to delete.

We are running out of Library storage, but there is not a way to bulk select large amounts of old photos and delete besides scrolling back and loading hundreds of images. If there was a way to sort the display of Library photos that would make managing Library space much easier.

I am looking for a way to clear the documents that are two and three years old. It is difficult to find current documents in the long list.

Having an option to show more than 10 items at once would be great. Also, a select all button - as in select all results - would be super helpful to batch delete things.

I would like to be able select all! instead just the few that show up on a page. I need to delete 3500 out of 3600 photos, what a long process it is when you have to go page by page.

Please make deletions from the library much simpler. We should be able to go back a year or more instantly and be able to clean out our storage. Thank you!

When you delete an image, you automatically are returned to the very beginning of the collection...even if you are trying to work thru many pages of images. Organizing them into a folder when viewing in "tiles" is impossible, you are not presented with an option by which to move them. In "tiles" you can either delete or click to enlarge/edit, but not move the image into a folder. There's got to be a better way to do this.

Was the Sort by Date Column feature that Caitlin mentioned on 10-31-2019 removed? I cannot sort any of our columns, multiple browsers, multiple networks. No sorting ability.

Hello @CeliaM7. You can sort by date in the library by clicking on the Date Added column.

Hi @KLNB

 

The sorting options available in the Library at this time are not available in accounts with more than 1,000 files in it. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause! And recommend sharing this need directly on its feature request thread.

In other words "The sorting option is not available to those who need it most. If you are a power user, we suggest you find a different vendor!"

I am trying to clear out old images to make more room in our library. It would be great if there were sort options on the library page (newest to oldest and vice versa at a minimum). Also, after scrolling for ten minutes to find old images to delete, I was bummed that after deleting one, it took me back to the top of the list where I had to scroll down ten minutes to get back to the old ones... Argh!

So call me stupid... but I don't see ANY WAY to remove images you no longer want from the Constant Contact Library.  If you can advise... PLEASE HELP!!  Thanks
