Image management

Create a team image library with shared image folders

Go to your collaboration settings in the team admin panel. If the "All images are shared automatically" is selected, after a team member uploads an image, other users will be able to access this image by clicking on the image icon in the top left corner of their canvas and selecting “Image Manager.”
 
If "all users to share specific images and folders" is selected, then images or image folders will need to be manually shared for a team member to see them in their Image Manager.
