Image File Versioning allows users to keep track of different versions of a single image file. With this feature, all versions of an image file are linked together and can be activated when needed, allowing Library Staff to quickly replace a file with an updated version.
Each image version takes up storage in your account.
Uploading a New Version
Library Staff can upload a new version of a file in the right pane of the Library.
- Navigate to a single image file
- In the right pane, click Revisions
- Drag a file or click the upload target to replace the image with a new version. Once uploaded, the new version will be activated.
The version of a file is indicated by a or tag, seen below. A blue tag indicates which version of the file is Activated:
To Activate a previous version of a file, click the Activate button below the image. You can also Delete or Download a version of the image using the Trash and Download icons below a version:
You cannot Delete the Activated version of an image file. Activate an alternative version, then Delete the version you no longer need.
Note: Deleted versions of an image cannot be restored. You will need to re-upload the version in order to restore it.
Users who upload a new version of a file can leave a Note.
Note: Only the user who uploaded a file version can edit or delete their Note.
Is File Versioning limited to image files?
Yes, only image files can be versioned at this time.
Can I upload a new version of a file if it's a different filetype?
No, only the same filetypes can be uploaded as different versions.
Is there a limit to how many versions of a file can be uploaded?
No, there is no limit to the number of versioned files you can upload.
Does the new version of an image need to have the same filename?
No, the filenames do not need to match.
If I Activate a new version of an image, will the new version display in my embedded slideshow?
Yes, the Activated version will appear in your embedded slideshow. This is the same for Drupal and our CC Connector. However, our WordPress plugin does not yet support displaying Activated versions. You will need to import the version of the image you want to use in WordPress.
