    There's no 'bulk' way to move images into a folder? If I have 100 images, I'm not going to pull up each image to guess at the name of the folder. I'm especially not going to do that for 1000 images. In the same vein, there doesn't seem to be a way to bulk tag images, either.

    Hi Eric, bulk operations via the UI (inc. tagging, moving between folders, and more..) is currently WIP in our labs, and should become available somewhere during the next couple of months.
    Meantime, you can use our API to issue this kind of operation. We'd love to help if needed, feel free to contact us on a support ticket.

    Is this available yet? I would like to move some images from one folder to another. Finding it very difficult - and not sure how to work an API?

    Hi, sorry for not updating this thread earlier.
    A couple of months ago we added a multi-selection capability to the Media-Library along with a nice set of operations, including bulk move to folder, as well as ZIP archiving, tagging & deleting.

    Hi Gerardo,
    While the "select all" option is not supported, you can select a range of resources by holding the 'Shift' key when checking two check-boxes. More advanced UI features are on their way.

    What if it is a Facebook profile image? There is no rename option.
    I need to put Facebook profile images that i pull in from a wifi login system that uses Facebook into a clients folder that has presets on it, then pass back that url into a merge tag in Mail Chimp..

    First i need to figure out how to get the Facebook image in a folder though or how to get these uploaded through zapier but i keep getting an error there.

    Need some help with this... A zapier app would be great. Have you guys thought about this? This is painful right now lol

    You may use tags to distinguish between different users content instead of folders.
    Facebook resources, like any other automatically fetched resource cannot be renamed as we require the name to correspond to its origin (e.g. profile ID, URL, etc.).
    To bypass this restriction you can upload the image, and save with any public ID you desire.

    I wanted to use folders so everything was a little more organized.

    Hi Scott, try setting "payload type" to "form".
    Also note that our upload API requires providing either a signature (for signed upload) or a unsigned upload-preset (for unsigned). API-SECRET shouldn't be passed as a parameter to the HTTP POST request.

    Hello,

    Is the possibility to rename or move a file available?

    Thanks,

    Hi Lionel,

    Sure:) You can rename a file directly from the Media library (as explained by Itay).
    Alternatively, you can use the rename API -
