Problem - Reusing an image from the Library and editing it's tag edits all Instructables using that image

I don't know if this has always been this way, or it might be new, but I just noticed something that for me is a big issue.Sometimes I reuse images from my graphic library of images I've previously uploaded to Instructables for use in other tutorials. That sounded like a great feature. However, I just noticed that if I use the same image in two or more instructables (selected from the library), if I edit the text boxes in one, it modifies the text boxes in all of the images. What a disaster! Now I have no idea of what Instructables I've screwed up in the past thanks to this. Sometimes I might want an image for one reason, and later I might want to use it to call out a whole different issue.Please consider correcting this. I thought the point of the library was to avoid uploading duplicate content to Instructables servers. Now I'll have to upload the same image as many times as I need to reuse it, since by default I intend to use different call-out boxes (or however they are called on them).If I'm getting this wrong, and this bug is actually a feature, please let me know how I am interpreting this issue the wrong way
