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.

    This seems like basic functionality and it's somewhat shocking that this isn't part of Webflow's capabilities.

    it looks like it has been almost two years since the first comment in this thread. Does web flow have a policy of not responding to wishlist threads? I’m surprised not to see any response from web flow on this…

    Basic need, should be in there.

    I 100% agree with this -- Webflow does so many things SO WELL, and then you'll get these things that are total headscratchers. Why is this not built yet?

    Beyond just the Editors being able to access the Media Library via the CMS, they need that ability when managing on-page images in the WYSIWYG interface, too. Even if it's just a separate folder or sequestered area for Editor uploads. I have an Editor who's uploaded variations of the same image multiple times because she has no other recourse. That's a waste of storage and a mess for people in the Designer to wade through just to manage the back end. Please add better image management for Editors ASAP!

    This morning marks 100% of my clients that want this feature. I do not understand why they can't just turn this on in the Editor and add a list or folder option for clients to access? Please get on it Webflow, you guys need to be focusing on the basics before the big moves.

    Yes, please! Just getting started with Webflow (long-time WordPress'r) and building my first database collection and immediately hit this hurdle. Really need the ability to add images from my media library!

    You've got to see things from our client's perspective as well as from your target audience (designer's like myself) - this is the sort of mundane issue that can really put them off.

    I feel like crying. Please let us know when this will work?

    It would be great to bind a whole folder from assets galleries to multi-image fields or likns from uploaded images from the galleries. And all alt text for SEO. Thank you.

    Am new user. Prior to purchasing CMS I prepared by uploading properly sized images to asset folders with the intent of having 1 asset folder per project page (it's a portfolio). I just got CMS and was planning on using the asset folders but will now have to re-upload everything to the CMS multi-image drop boxes. It seems I'm not the only person who instinctively uploads stuff there first (see other commenters). If you guys don't plan on fixing it, at least put a loud warning text in the asset manager upload "CAN'T USE FOR CMS-- [ ] check to not see warning again"

    My use case for this is that I have already uploaded all the profile pictures into the asset manager when I built an About Us page, and I'd like to re-use all of them for the blog's author profile picture. Re-uploading them into the CMS for every blog post is one thing, but I'm concerned if it would make the site load slower? Would anyone have an answer on this?

    Is there an ETA on this? Webflow checks all the boxes for my client except this feature. It's required.

    This feature would make things much more efficient! Please add this if there is a chance! In addition to images I'd love to be able to add Lottie animations from the asset manager. Many thanks!

    Hi Webflow,

    Are there any updates on this feature?

    Thanks for your time.

    I just uploaded 80 images to asset manager, just to find out I can't use them in a collection. NICE!

    What is this? This is a no-brainer. Please fix it.

    It's frustrating that this isn't already a feature. It makes updating images and working on live sites pretty time consuming having to track down everywhere an image is used.
