Sometimes you want to replace photos for a set without removing the set entirely because it has videos that are present. This guide walks you through the multi-step process of removing old photos and adding new photos and processing them to an existing set.

If you are editing a single set.

1) On the FTP server, locate the set folder on the server and remove the 'photos, thumbs, 1024watermarked, 1280watermarked, and 1600watermarked' folders.

2) Upload the new 'photos' folder with the correct images in .jpg format.

3) In the cms_admin panel, go to the set in question under Content -> Manage Content Sets. Find the set in question and click "Edit" to edit the set.

4) Under the "Create Full Size Photos and Thumbnails" menu, make sure all of the thumbnails / watermarked image options you wish to create are checked. Additionally, make sure any zip file options you wish to create are checked:

5) Click Save Changes. The system will re-process and re-create any watermarked images or set thumbnails in question.

If you are changing / processing multiple sets:


1) On the FTP server, locate the set folders on the server and remove the 'photos, thumbs, 1024watermarked, 1280watermarked, and 1600watermarked' folders from each set.

2) Upload the new 'photos' folder with the correct images in .jpg format.

3) In the cms_admin panel go to "Batch Operations" under 'Utilities'

4) Select the sets from the Select Sets select box:

5) Select the 'remove content' and 'import content' options and scroll down to select 'process' at the bottom of the page. This removes the old content entries and re-indexes the set folder for all content.

6) When this process is finished, you'll want to select the set again.

7) Now select the photo processing options you want to create( Create Thumbs, Create 1024watermarked, 1280watermarked, and 1600watermarked, etc)

8) Scroll down and select "Process"

9) When this process is finished, you'll want to select the set again and move it back over to the right-hand side to be selected.

10) Now in this final pass, you'll want to select the following options:
__Calculate Image Sizes / Movie Information
__Recalculate Set XML ( ? ) Help
__Recalculate Content Totals

When this is done your set should be done and the new images are added to the existing set.
