Great question! Here's what you need to do:

  1. First, you need to get to your image manager: click the tree icon (Tree icon in rich text editor.) in any Rich Text Editor box.
  2. Click on the red Click to upload an image... link.
  3. In the bottom part of the screen, you'll see thumbnails of all your images.
    Click the X in the upper right hand corner of an image to delete it from your personal image library.
    Image manager screen with X circled.
  4. You'll get a pop-up box asking you if you're sure you want to delete it. If you're sure, click OK.
    This cannot be undone. Please make sure that you're sure!
    Image deletion confirmation pop-up.

Keep in mind, if the image is still in use on your site (i.e. you've embedded the image on one or more of your guides), deleting it from your image library will cause those embedded images to break, so proceed with caution!
