Ability to add images to the CMS from the Asset Manager

When adding images to a collection within the designer, you have the ability to choose existing images which have already been uploaded via the asset manager in addition to the current ability to upload new images.

    How is this not a feature already? Seems like a no-brainer..

    Why upload images to your media library if you can't then add them to CMS.

    Am I missing something here?

    ...ok, I figured out the reference field :-)

    Wow... so it's impossible to reuse an image (like an icon or logo for instance) from the assets manager that appears in some but not all collection items. Insanity.

    If I had any more votes this would be one of them. Clients want to have a quick access to a repository of approved imagery for their site in addition to uploading their own......+1

    Sharing assets will only help performance scores for Webflow and clear unnecessary redundancies in the users' cache. For example, I am creating about bios collection and the images I am using for pics are on another page.

    Doesn't makes sense without it.

    This would be incredibly useful! Having to upload new images for each field is so repetitive - especially when it's the same image!

    This is so important!

    I have also seen a wish for defining alt text for images in CMS. This wish would solve this as well. Maybe this should be merged.

    We've been waiting for this feature for three years. Is it going to happen? I love Webflow but there's some features I really would love to see sooner rather than later

    Considering the great lengths Webflow goes to get their Designer so impeccably right—how is this not such an obvious thing to have by now (3 years later?)

    Surely this should be merged into 'Better Asset Management' seen as though its fundamentally what we're wanting to achieve?

    Ability to add images to the CMS from the Asset Manager, C'mon...

    Since this has been here for 2 years I assume it's not happening?

    Critical. Clients also need to manage (link to and upload) the Assets!!!

    This needs to happen... especially how much work it takes to get lean versions of images to use... if left tot he client, they will upload giant images every time... NO GOOD! I batch upload a set of images that have been optimized when we build in wordpress - should be standard option here plese.  LOVE webflow!
