Adding images in Piktochart is simple and easy. You can use images from our free library or upload your own images. When adding and uploading your own images, you can build a library of your assets in the My Uploads tab which allows you to reuse those assets in the future in one or more projects without having to upload them again. This saves you time and resources!
As a Free user, you will receive up to 100MB of upload storage, while Pro users get up to 100GB of upload storage. You may view your available storage from the uploads progress bar.
When uploading your own images make sure:
- Your image format is JPG, PNG SVG and GIFs
There are two ways in which you can upload an image into Piktochart Editor:
Upload via Drag and drop
Simply drag and drop images from an open folder on your local drive directly onto the canvas you are working on. This will automatically upload the asset to your project area and store it in your My Uploads for future access to other projects.
Upload by selecting File
From the MyUploads tab, click Browse File.
Select the file from your computer folder.
The image will appear in your uploaded images library. Click again to insert the uploaded image into your canvas.
You can also choose to upload a file from your computer. Here's how:
Depending on the plan you are on, you can upload up to:
To delete images from your Uploads library:
Hover over the image you would like to delete.
Click on the Trash can in the top right corner of the image.
Click OK to confirm the action. The image will then be removed from your library.
You can also select multiple uploads to delete at once by selecting the box within the image and click Delete:
Or, you can click Select All to delete all your uploads.
Why can't my uploaded images show in my visuals?
If you upload a personal image and place it on the canvas, the image must always remain stored in the Uploads section of the Editor.
If it is deleted from Uploads, you will see a blank space on the canvas during editing and download. You'll need to re-upload the file again and then re-insert it on the canvas.
What format can I upload my files in?
You can upload any files in this format:
Active contents such as GIF animations will not work on PNG and PDF downloads as these formats are static.
Why can't I upload more images?
It could be that you have reached the maximum upload space. As a Free user, you will have up to 100MB of upload space. If you wish to upload more images, you can either upgrade to Pro for more upload space or delete your uploads to create more space.
However, do note though that if it is deleted from your Uploads library, only a blank space will appear on the canvas during editing and download. To see it on the visual again, you'll need to re-upload the file and then re-insert it on the canvas.
