How To Add Image To Figma

If you’re new to using Figma and you’re wondering how to add images to your design templates, you’ve come to the right place. Using images can greatly enhance your designs, making them more appealing and interactive. In this blog post, we will guide you through the steps on how to add images to your Figma designs.

Step 1: Open Your Design in Figma

Your first step is to open your Figma application. You can access it either via a web browser or by downloading the desktop application. Once you’re in, you can select the design where you’d like to insert an image.

Step 2: Accessing the Image Source

Before you can insert an image, you first need to have your image ready. Ensure that it is saved in an accessible location, such as your desktop or a designated folder.

Step 3: Adding the Image

Adding an image to Figma is quite straightforward. Here are the steps:

  1. On your Figma layout, create a rectangle shape where you want your image to be placed. You can do this by using the Rectangle tool (R) in the toolbar.
  2. Once the rectangle is created, go to the fill settings located in the right sidebar. You’ll find a small image icon there, click on it.
  3. A new panel will appear allowing you to choose from different fill options. Choose the ‘Image’ option.
  4. Click on the ‘Choose Image’ button. This will open a file picker where you can select the image you want to add.
  5. Locate and select the image you want to add from your computer and click the ‘Open’ button. Your image will now be placed inside the rectangle you created.

Here’s a sample code illustrating the above steps:
