Move an image to the trash: Drag and drop the image into the trash folder or select “Trash” from the Image Options Menu.

The left column of the Image Manager contains the Folder Manager. The top folder, “My Images,” contains all the images you have uploaded into your account, and the bottom “Trash” folder stores deleted images. If another Lucidpress user has shared an image with you, a “Shared With Me” folder will appear, and if you are on a team account, a “Brand Images” folder may display. Any custom folder you create will also appear in this column. Read on to learn how to work with the Folder Manager.
