Hi, I'm Omar, and I'm a programmer. Today, I'm going to show you how to update existing imagery using Media Manager on your WordPress blog. So, the first thing you want to do is log in to your WordPress dashboard. As you can see, I've already done so here. Now, if you go to Media and try to edit it, edit the images on your library, you'll see that you won't be able to. So the first thing you want to do is install a plugin called, "enable media replace." So, search for the plugin. It should be the first one that appears. Go ahead and install that plugin. It will ask you if you want to install. Just press, "okay." Activate the plugin once it's done installing. Afterwards, there's nothing else you need to do except go to your media editor and click on the image you want to replace, and click, "edit." Once you're there, you'll notice a new button down below saying, "replace media." Click on, "upload new file," and choose the file that you want to replace it with. I just chose "friend.jpg," and click whether you want to just replace the file or replace the file, use the new file name and update all links. I'm just going to go ahead and replace the file and upload. Once it's fully uploaded, you'll see that the image is now the changed image that you just uploaded. I'm Omar, and I just showed you how to replace existing imagery using Media Manager on your WordPress blog. Thanks for watching.
