    And if the tools of Buildbox don’t delete the image you want to remove from your game you can follow those steps:

    /!\ Make a backup just in case before /!\

    1. Get the free software 7zip (or Winrar)
    2. Open your bbdoc with 7zip
    3. Open the folder « images »
    4. Copy/Paste the images in a folder on your desktop (in order to see their previews)
    5. Remove the image(s) you want to remove in the desktop folder
    6. Go to the folder « images » in 7zip (in the bbdoc) and delete all the images
    7. Copy/Paste the images from your desktop folder to the « images » folder in 7zip (in the bbdoc)
    8. Close 7zip
    9. Open your bbdoc with 7zip
    10. Open the folder « Atlases » and delete all the files in this folder.
    11. Close 7zip
    12. Open your bbdoc with Buildbox
    13. Open Atlases (in buildbox)
    14. Click on optimize, then rebuild
    15. You’re done. :)

    Sorry if the guide is too much detailed haha

    What i do is remove unused images, SAVE GAME, then reload game into buildbox and hit remove unused images again and it will remove the left overs.

    I have a Mac so I had to use keka but when I try to open my bbdoc it just converts it to a 7zip file. I don't see any folders anywhere. Maybe only in 7zip opposed to keka?

    Normally when you open your bbdoc with an unarchiver you should see all the folders of the bbdoc.
    Maybe try with 7zX.
