At the bottom of the edit-page you can see in which modules the media-item is used.

Edit media

On this page you can edit or enter meta data of the media items in the project (title, location, photographer and tags). You can enter multiple tags separated by commas.

Also you can replace the media file with a different one. The metadata and tags will be retained. Be aware that this will replace the media file with the new one everywhere in the project where it is linked. When you want to replace a media file only in a specific module and associated item (species, glossary entry, etc.) then go to this module and detach the media file there. After detaching you can then upload and link a new media file for the specific module and associated item (species, glossary entry, etc.).

At the bottom of the edit-page you can see in which modules the media-item is used. From here you cannot change these relations. To do so you have tot go to the specific module and associated item (species, glossary entry, etc.)..
