Deleting Photos

I need to delete photos and cannot figure out how. I asked support for help and here is what they said:

"If you wish to delete your photos in Picture Gallery Widget, please follow these few steps:
Click on the "Edit" link on the top left-hand corner of your Picture Gallery Widget.
A dialog box will open up with a list of pictures you currently have in your gallery.
Beside the picture you wish to delete, click on the "Trashcan" icon. This will automatically remove the picture from the list.
Click on "Save" and your Picture Gallery will now be updated with the latest changes."

I don't have the options suggested available to me. Don't know why, but don't. What can I do?

Hello Michael,

The instructions above presume you are displaying your photos in the specific Picture Gallery widget.

If you have placed images using the single image widget (ie Picture widget) then the procedure is different. At the top right hand corner of the Picture widget while you are in the sitebuilder, as you mouse over the image, you will see an X. Clicking on this deletes the picture and placeholder from your page.

If this isn't how you've placed your image it would help to outline the process you used to place the photo(s).

Hi and thanks for the reply. I am sure this is something simple I am overlooking, but I still cannot find what I am told. When in the site builder for this particular site I choose "picture gallery" from the "widgets" menu at the top of the page. That takes me to a page giving me the choice to upload new photos or browse uploaded images. I choose ""browse uploaded images" and it takes me to a page titled "select images for your gallery" with all my photos displayed. When I mouse over an image all I get is a highlighted image and the choice to use "edit with Avairy" or "preview". The only "X" I get is in the right top corner (x in a black circle) of the page where one can close the window. If I choose the "picture" option from the widget menu I end up in the same place.

Hello Michael,

Thanks for getting back.

Still not sure but do you wish to remove the pictures from your File manager, ie. the place where you upload all your images to for subsequent use?

If so Navigate to your File Manager and if you then right click on any of the images, an option to delete will be shown.

Please let us know if this is what you mean?

To navigate to your File Manager:

Site > Content > File Manager

Hello Geoffrey,

Can you outline the problem? Easy to presume that it's the same problem but it may not be. Best to expand on it to be sure.
