Using the Correct Format

Doodly accepts uploads of PNG, JPG, and SVG image files as well as, animated GIFs.

The maximum allowed image size is 1920 X 1080. Upon importing, your custom image will be added to your personal image library.

For the best results and clearest images of Doodly uploads, we have a few recommendations:

  • SVGs will yield the best results.

  • PNGs (with transparent background) with a resolution of at least 72 ppi are a great alternative. 

Please Note: For imported files, the default draw path is a wide, sweeping motion. If another illustration pattern is desired, you will need to create a custom path for your image.

Uploading an Image

To upload a custom image file, navigate to the "Props" menu of your Doodly Dashboard and click the blue and white + symbol. 

The "Add new prop" menu will appear, allowing you to select the desired image file (on your device) and enter the title

Once that is complete, click "Continue" to add the file. It will then be available for use within your Doodly account!

Deleting an Image From Your Library

To delete imported images from your Doodly account, you should first add the image into an active doodle video project.

Next, click on the image you plan on removing from your image library. 

A set of icons will appear to the top right - choose the "Pencil" icon to edit the actions for your image/asset:

This will open the asset "Actions" menu where you can select "Delete asset" to remove the image entirely:

Please Note: This action cannot be undone once an item has been fully deleted from your image library.

You can do this by clicking on the image and go to asset settings then click the gear icon. On asset settings, tick Invert and select Apply
