Upload and replace images (all instances)

Rather than having to upload a new image, reassign and delete the existing one, allow us to upload a new image that will replace an existing one. The utility of this is, I believe, self-evident and would be a significant time saver.

    It is September 2022 and webflow didn't manage to add this very basic feature. Five years later and we are still waiting!

    Jumping on this thread. Right now I'm making a work around by turning a re-used, constantly updating data image into a symbol, but being able to simple update the image asset itself would be incredibly helpful.

    Really need this feature!! I need to compress all images for better loading and now have to re-assign hundreds of images throughout. Thanks!

    Does this work now?

    I can't find it.

    Please inform us.

    This has now been labeled as 'Shipped', but I'm not able to figure out how I actually does this!

    Is this indeed shipped?

    Good generic time of the day!

    Slight "tweak" - we're replacing images with compressed/optimized ones and when we replace the image in the "asset" folder would like the images on/in pages/posts to be updated.

    Yes, please and don't forget to include files like pdf and so on. 
    I still have to to host pdf's myself even though webflow now supports pdf's. 
    The fact that I cannot update ex. product pdf catalog linked at numerous places makes it a no way to go.

    This is a basic functionality which most people use. I would love to see this implemented.

    Replacing images in asset manager would be a HUUUGE timesaver! Please, please, please! :)

    Totally agree! 

    Click on the cogwheel in an asset, should reveal not just a delete button but also a replace button. That will ask you to upload a replacing picture, automatically replacing this asset on every page that it is used, maintaining the same styling.
