We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
InVision Studio provides a simple way of updating or replacing images as fills (no resizing or reimporting necessary). See attached screenshot below.
This rather fundamental action appears to be missing with XD and costing me valuable production time. Am I overlooking it?
Thanks in advance for any insight.

Thank you for reaching out and sharing your feedback. I understand it could be annoying. I found a similar request has been raised here: Ability to replace/update image files – Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs if this is what you're looking for, I would request you to please upvote the feature request and add your voice in the comment section.
Please let me know if you face any issues with this. I'd be happy to help
Will do. Thank you for the reply, Harshika.
Have you tried dragging another image over the shape? It should replace it as an image fill.
That works! Thanks so much, Harshika!
OMG thank you so much, it's a simple solution but i've been searching the asnwer for so long
Thanks for the tip, I think I will start using InVision instead of XD, since I don't want to replace a logo a hundred times when it updates once.
The secret to quickly updating an image or a logo, is by creating it as a master component, and use reference copies of it in your artboards. Here's how to do this on a Mac (PC users can swap Command for Control, and Control-Click for Right-Click):
On a related note, "Paste Appearance" will be your best friend when you wish to replace individual photos or artwork that have been duplicated with the "Repeat Grid" feature. Command-V will replace all of the repeat-grid images, which may not be the desired result, if you just want to update a single image within the grid.
I hope that this helps!
