The scope allows you to group files by scope and add a custom scope. Also, you can edit scope templates.

Now it's possible to add a watermark to the selected image. There are various settings to set up watermark according to your needs: position, padding and etc. You can automatize this process or add a watermark button.
3. Attach files to the article
This is another key feature we have released according to many users' requests.
How does it work? First of all, you should note the component attach files from scopes and there are scope templates. For instance, you can prepare a special HTML layout for attaching a file (button, class, etc) which depends on scope: audio, video and files come with different templates, so using this feature you even can embed media content inside of your article.
3.1. Template for the scope 'Audio'
3.2. Go to the scope folder and select the file to attach.
3.3. The file has been attached (embedded).
Such an approach allows you to attach documents and change its layout using templates in component settings to comply with design standards of your Joomla template.
4. Rename of files and folders
It was a must-have feature in the core Joomla Media component and now it's easy to do with Quantum Manager!
Just click on mouse right button and find additional actions to do: you can rename, remove, view the image or copy its URL.
