    Hi,

    I have images on a wordpress site.

    Those images have been edit and should now being reuploaded. But if I upload the images they appeare double under media.

    They all have still the same file name, WordPress just ads an index to it, without asking me whether I want to rename them Replace or skip them.

    How is it possible to replace them?

    Install the plugin “enable media replace”. It will add a “replace” link when uploading files of the same name.

    Hi,

    good Idea but It’s not one image. I have to replace about 200 images.
    clicking this replace link so often is a bit much.

    Use FTP(like Filezilla) to upload the images, overwriting the originals, and then if you need it, use the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin.

    Also a good idea but wordpress saves media in folders per year and subfolders per month and these images are distributed into the folders since 2018.

    Where do I find these folders, so that I can fellow or do I not need the folders?

    I’m not quite sure if this is what you meant but under content/uploads wordpress creates the media folders.
