There are two ways to replace image files in Libris.
Replace the entire file with a file of exactly the same name
When you replace a file of exactly the same name with a new file, you will lose any existing IPTC metadata, custom metadata, and License Expiration Date metadata applied to that image file. Both files must have exactly the same name and extension (.jpg, .png) for this to work, however, they can look different (i.e. they can be an edited version of the same image). The Libris File ID (found under Basic Info in the right pane) will remain the same.
Go to Media > Library and find the gallery with the image you would like to replace. In the right pane, click the Upload button.
In the dialog box, look to the right top corner, click the dropdown, and select "Replace existing images."
Drag the replacement image files into the center pane and the upload will commence.
Replace what an image looks like
It is possible to replace an image such that filename and metadata is intact but the image itself looks different.
Go to Media > Library and find the gallery with the image you would like to replace. Double-click the image when the thumbnail is visible in the center pane. This should open a single-image view.
Click Actions > Replace. Use the file picker to locate an image file on your computer to replace this image with. Click Submit.
There is no way to go backwards to a previous version of the image, so, be sure you are replacing the image file with the right one before clicking "Submit". The Libris File ID (found under Basic Info in the right pane) will remain the same.
Replace non-image files
- Non-image files such as video, audio, and other files cannot be replaced with either of the two methods above
- You can upload a new version of a non-image file, which will create a new Libris File ID. However, the previous version of the file will continue to live in your Library, unless you delete it
