Importing images

You can import your own images into your VideoScribe project. Let's take a look at how...


NOTE: We made some changes in v3.11 of VideoScribe. If you are using an earlier version of the software the screens will look different. Please upgrade to the latest version of VideoScribe.

You’ll have access to over 11,000 free images in VideoScribe but can always upload your own to add that special touch.  

You can import these types of images:

  • JPEG
  • PNG
  • SVG
  • GIF

There are three ways to import any of these types of images into your project:

Option 1 - Selecting files from your computer:

  1. Click on the ‘Add new image’ button
  2. Select the ‘My images’ tab
  3. Select the ‘From my computer’ button
  4. Select one or multiple files from your computer (To multi-select your files, hold down the SHIFT key and select the files you wish to use)
  5. Click ‘Open’ to add to your canvas 

Option 2 - Dragging and dropping files into VideoScribe:

  1. Select one or multiple images on your computer
  2. Drag those selected files directly onto the canvas

Option 3 - Using an image from a URL address:

  1. Click on the ‘Add new image’ button
  2. Select the ‘My images’ tab
  3. Select the ‘From a URL’ button
  4. Enter the image URL address of the image you wish to use 
  5. Click the tick button to add to your canvas 

For JPEGs and PNGs, you will also need to select which animation method you’d like the image to use. If you choose ‘Draw’, the style of animation can only be adjusted at this step. 

TOP TIP: If you do not like these options then you can turn your JPG or PNG image into an SVG which will allow you to set out exactly how it is drawn in the application. Instructions on how to do this can be found on our Create your own images page.
