Hi,

I have recently deleted various blogs from my site as well as changed a few photos on my gallery page but i still see those photos in the file manager, so....

1: Can i now delete this images which are no longer active on the site?

2: How do i delete the images i no longer want?

3: If i remove images will this affect the website at all?

4: Will this also reduce my Disk Usage?

Thanks Very Much!

The thrash bin you see at the bottom of this panel only refers to upload files, which aren’t in use (= no link pointing to them)

Placed or filled images only can be deleted by  finding them in the layout and deleting them there.

There are 2 ways to find those images:

  • Right click onto the asset entry in the asset panel and choose „Go to Asset“. Then delete the asset from your layout.
  • Open the „Layers“ panel and look for the image. Delete it by pressing „Delete“ or clicking onto the thrash bin.

Removing assets doesn’t affect your website, because you can’t delete assets, which are in use.

Yes, it will reduce your disk usage, because Muse stores all assets (resampled to output size) within its .muse file. This is the reason, why you don’t necessarily need the image files, once you have placed them (and don’t want to upsize or modify them).
