Sitecore Quick Tip: Detach and Attach Media

ap out an image already used on your website in various places?
If you have ever done this, there are several ways to do this:
  1. [Not recommended] Upload a new media asset or delete the old one, and assigned your assets to various image/files fields across the site. This is time-consuming as you need to re-associated this new media assets into fields on content items.
  2. [Recommended] Instead, leverage your existing media asset and the fact that fields across your site already have points to it by it Item ID. So instead, swap out the asset by clicking the detach button and attached to add new file system asset. Next simply publish the media item and all places on your site that reference this will be updated.
