I'm new to Cloudinary and am struggling to find a way to replace an image via the Web UI.
Let's say I've uploaded image A with the name "example.jpg". Now I'd like to replace this file with a different image B but keep the public URL the same. The one way I've figured out how to do it is to rename the old image in the Web UI to "example_old.jpg" and then upload the new image as "example.jpg". After some time, when the CDN refreshed the entry, the new image will be served instead of the old one.
However, this seems like a cumbersome way to replace an image and I assume there is a much more straightforward way to do it. Also, with this, the image's version history is now broken as I didn't really replace the image. Instead of one version history, there are now two, one for "example_old.jpg" and one for "example.jpg".
Instead of having to explain to my colleagues how to replace an image following the confusing multi-step approach outlined above, it would be much better to tell them to click on some "replace image" button. Is there a better way to replace the image in the Web UI that doesn't require this process and that doesn't break the version history?
