Image Libraries let you organize dynamic image options to use on multiple templates at the same time. Image Libraries can be applied to: 

  • Dynamic Images

Once you assign a library to a Customily element, every change you make on the library will be reflected in that element.
For example, let's say you want to offer 5 new image options for your printed products. If you edit the library that has all the images used for those prints and add 5 new PNGs to it, all the dynamic images that use this library will be updated across all templates!

To create an image library

1. Open the libraries menu as shown here

2. Select Image Libraries Tab

3. Click Add Library to create a new library

4. Name your library and click create to start choosing the images for the library

5. Once the library is created you will see it on your library list. Click Edit to see the library and start adding images to it

To add image options to your library

1. Click Edit to see the library and add, delete or modify image options in it

2. To add a new image option click Add Image

3. Choose the image option you are going to add. If this is the first image you are adding to the library, then it will be option 1
If you want to assign an image to a different option, you can either type the option number or click the arrows next to it to change options.
4. Click Upload Image(s) to select the image you want to add to that option.
Pro tip!!
You can upload multiple images in consecutive positions by selecting them all together from the upload dialog. The images will be uploaded in the same order as the files appear on your folder.
5. Once the image (or multiple images!) is uploaded, click Create Image(s)

5. You'll now see the image was saved into option number 1. Repeat this as many times as images you want to add to the library. At the end of the process, you'll have something like this:

Every extra image you add will be automatically added to the following option. For example, if you already have 3 options set, the next image you add will by default be added in image option 4, unless you change that manually of course.

To edit an image library

1. Select any library you want to edit from your libraries list and click the Edit button

2. Once inside the library, you can either add new images, edit existing images, and delete existing images.

To clone an image library

1. Select any library you want to clone from your libraries list and click the Clone button

2. The cloned library will appear at the end of the list, with the text "cloned" added to its name. To edit that library's name just click the name to make it active, type any new name you want, and hit enter.
