Images deleted from Gallery ~ Lesson learned

Hello Community

A few times a year, I review my Bookmarks and Subscriptions.   Thinking, deleting old / unused / not wanted Bookmarks and Subscriptions is prudent Community housekeeping.

To that purpose, I recently deleted a few approved Images from my Gallery.  Thinking, as I've posted these images and have little / no likely need of them in future.   Prudent Community housekeeping.

Well, after the fact.  I realized that Images deleted from my Gallery are also deleted from my messages. 

Offering some user in the future a void in my message.

Lesson learned.  Images must be resident in gallery to reside in messages. 

Perhaps, a brief advisory.   Upon user option Delete Image ~ Image will also be deleted from message. 

Thanks for your interest

Good point -- I wonder if it would be technically posssible to add a note to an image indicating that it was in use in a message and maybe even link to the message(s) it is used in?

Interesting, if technically possible.  Although consider that my messages / any message has a defined edit time window.  During the edit window of opportunity message content may be altered.   Upon expiration of edit time.  Message content may not be altered.  Message content is " set "....or, so I thought.   Apparently, message content cannot be altered applies to message text.   An image delete advisory and / or an image in use notation certainly have merit.  That said...the fact remains.  The edit window of opportunity expired.  Time to alter message content expired.  I had a reasonable expectation that my message content (text and image) was " set ".  That message content simply would not be altered.   Regardless of what ever housekeeping I may perform.   I had a reasonable expectation that the defined edit time would lock message content.    Lesson learned.
