Edit file names, descriptions and metadata at any time.
Editing a single file
To edit a single file's name, description, or metadata, click on the Three Dots Menu and select Info .
You can also double-click on the file to view a larger preview and click the Info icon in the Toolbar.
In the Infobar you can view and edit the following settings for this file:
- Name – file's name.
- Description – file's description.
- Tags – add tags/keywords that describe the file (remember to press enter after each keyword). Tags make it easier to find specific assets later on. Read more about Metadata.
- Author – add an author name if this makes sense for your workflow.
- Copyright – add a copyright note if there are any specific restrictions regarding this file's usage.
- Expiration – choose an expiration date if you want this item to expire. Read more.

A pop-up window will show where you can edit the following settings for the files you have selected:
- Description – files' description.

- Auto tag selected images – check this checkbox if you want to have the selected images tagged automatically using artificial intelligence. (Pro plan only). Read more about Auto-tagging.
Simply make the desired changes and click UPDATE FILES to save the changes.
Notice: When editing a lot of files, there can be a delay of up to 15 minutes before you can see the actual changes for each file. This is because we use embedded metadata (where the information and tags are written into the files).
Notice: Only Administrators or users with permission to "Edit files & folders" are able to edit files. Read more.
