Exporting Images from the Settings > Files Library

Hi friends, we're migrating our website from one Shopify store to a developer sandbox and have successfully migrated the theme and products.


Unfortunately, NONE of the images (social icons, logos, lifestyle photos) came over, and there doesn't appear to be any way to download our images.


Is there a way to export our image library? Or do we need to literally go through each photo, one by one, and download them?


Thank you!

(Also, if the latter is the answer...SHOPIFY PLEASE FIX THIS)

Hi, @BirdieGolden 


Elle here from Shopify. 

Currently, this feature does not exist in our platform. Our developers are aware of the requests for this feature and we do hope we can bring this to life soon!


I was able to find a GitHub where a developer external to Shopify details a couple of different ways to fetch these files using Javascript here.


Hope this helps!

This is ridiculous. I can't believe that you cannot let the store owner download their assets. What's wrong with you people?
