If you use Figma for your design needs, you may often find yourself needing to download images for further use, such as for presentations, websites, or simply for image archives. For those who are unsure, this article will guide you step-by-step on how to download an image from Figma.

Getting Started

To get started, you need to have a Figma account and a file you’d like to download an image from. Open the file in Figma.

Step 1: Select the Layer

First, you should select the layer of the image you wish to download. In the Layers section in the left sidebar, click on the layer of your desired image.

Step 2: Export Settings

Once the layer is selected, go to the right sidebar. Here, you’ll find an ‘Export’ section. Click on the ‘+’ button to add a new export setting.

Step 3: Choose Format and Scale

In the export setting, you can choose the format of your image. Figma supports several formats such as JPG, PNG, SVG, and PDF. Choose the one that suits your needs.

Below the format option, there is a scale option. You can choose how big you want your image to be relative to its size in the design. For instance, choosing ‘2x’ will give you an image twice as large as its design size.
