Images and Document Files
How do I edit an image once I insert it onto my page
It is best not to edit an image in Sitecore once uploaded. Doing so can cause the image to distort when seen on different screen sizes.
If you need to modify the image in any way, then re-edit it in a program that can accurately accomplish this (i.e. Adobe Photoshop, Gimp) and re-upload the image into the Media Library to overwrite the original version.

- How do I upload and insert an image?
I copied an image into the content area and it is not showing up
- If the image already exists in SiteCore, you can insert the image by selecting the Insert Sitecore Media icon from the Media Library.
- If the image has not been uploaded into SiteCore, you must first upload the image into SiteCore then insert the image by selecting the Insert Sitecore Media icon from the Media Library.
I uploaded an image into the Media Library but cannot find it.
Make sure you are uploading your images (and documents) into your Agency's media folder – not at the root level of the Media Library.
Is there any way to bulk move files from one folder to another under Media Library? I have one bureau that wanted a new folder and bunch of documents moved to it. It is very time consuming to move one at a time so I thought I would ask if there is an easier way.
Answer: If it's ALL the files from a particular folder being moved into another folder, CI may be able to help. However, if it's just certain files from a larger group, then unfortunately they’ll need to be moved manually.
My images I inserted on the page are not the same as what’s displaying on the website. Why?
File names tend to be the culprit. Multiple image files labeled the same way (in Sitecore's eyes) will create issues.
Sitecore will associate file names as the same when the file name contains:
- caps or lower case (GreenerGov SmLogo, GreenerGov smlogo)
- space or dash (GreenerGov smlogo, GreenerGov-smlogo)
