Hi,

I would like to select some images that are in a particular asset folder, from a tab in the CMS, and then have those images displayed on a page via the template.

I've familiarized myself with the functionality of FileDataObjectManager/Image Gallery module, but don't want to have to upload new files. Just want to select from existing images from an asset folder.

Any idea how to go about implementing such functionality?

Thanks very much.

In a FileDOM, one of the options is "choose existing" in the popup window when adding a record.

So does the 'choose existing' option copy files into the asset folder you specify or does it just link to it in the record?

Thanks UncleCheese.

If the upload folder for your DOM is different than the folder of the source file, it will copy it and create a new record.
