replace the image in a scheduled post

I'd like to be able to replace the image in a scheduled post. When I have an image update and i have to copy and past the caption and then delete and reschedule the post.

    We will look at ways of replacing media in scheduled posts that are consistent with the user experience you expect from Later.

    This is one of the most important things to update... tired of 're-doing' my posts (& copy paste texts) because cant add/delete image in the scheduled post...

    this is the worst thing in Later. I update a picture and, surprise, I have to redo the post from scratch, re-insert all 20 tags manually. This sucks. This extremely sucks.

    Wow, this is still an issue in 2021. At least make it clear in your FAQs to users.

    Please update this! It wastes too much time recreating a new post just to update photos

    This feature request was submitted in 2017 and still not implemented? I just joined later and this is a little discouraging when other apps have had this figured out for a while now.

    Agree, it's super annoying to realise you want to change the image and have to delete and start over.

    Please! I'm about to redo two post images because a detail was changed and I have to redo them for all four platforms - that's 8 posts for one change! Also, this would be very useful for prescheduling with placeholder images and changing the images later. Thanks!

    I also cannot believe that this isn't possible yet. What's the timeline to be able to do this?

    If you want to change a link or an image and its description, you have to delete the scheduled post, redo it and schedule again.

    This should be one of the most basic options for this platform! At least once or twice a week I need to revise an image. To recreate the entire post AGAIN— makes no sense and it's a waste of time. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE— work on this option.

    I would like to have this option too. Being able to switch out images was something I could do on Planoly and really does make life easier.

    wait why is this feature set as "will not implement"

    I just wasted 20 minutes in the help menu trying to rephrase my question. It never occured to me that this wouldn't be a basic feature. Then I come here and find a post from three and a half years ago with 40 comments and 412 votes and a tag that says "will not implement." Well I "will not renew my subcription" and I "will take my business elsewhere."

    This app is horrible and missing basic functions I'm looking into other websites now. Absolute trash, you should all be ashamed

    This is a feature that needs to be implemented asap. Its a simple and basic function that so many paying customers are asking for. IMPLEMENT THIS FEATURE.

    Maybe they have a different name for it. Please check and vote on https://ideas.later.com/ideas/LATER-I-1144

    Getting tired of Later not having basic features like this, or boolean search for media, or better tag management and filter etc.
