(Iam talking about T3 V6+)

Images are stores as IRRE Records.
Along with the Image there are Captions and altext/title text stored.

Now I wand to repace the Image A with Image B
(B is not a new Version of A: This could be achived with overwriting the file is selfe)

If you want to replace the Image with an other you have to
- add a new Image,
- copy the alt-Text/caption to the new
- move the New Image to the old position
- delete the Old image,

There sould be a Button "Replace the File".

i would welcome this feature in the next Version of TYPO3.

Thank you,

We had a rather hard time understanding the ticket.
