Cleaning up image resource tags


How do I delete unused image resource tags that are filling up the 'By Tag' tab in the assets panel?

I'm building a Runway site which is using a lot of images, so we've been tagging them as we upload so we can find and re-use them, which is great. However, some of the images were already tagged with irrelevant tags which we deleted from the individual images, but they're still showing up in the 'By tag' tab in the assets panel, making it difficult to manage.

Can I safely remove these unused tag entries from the perch_resource_tags database table?

Yes, you can do that. We hope to add a cleanup routine in the future.
