How Do I Import a JPEG Into Figma?

Importing a JPEG image into Figma is a simple process. It requires the user to have a Figma account and to have the JPEG file saved on their computer. Once they have these two items they can begin the process of importing it into Figma.

The first step is to open up the Figma app on your device. On the left side of the screen you will see a list of projects and from there you will select the project you would like to add your image too. After selecting the project, click on “File” at the top of your screen, then select “Import” from the drop down menu.

Once you select “Import” you will be prompted to upload your JPEG file. Select the file and it will appear in its own layer within your project. Now that your JPEG is in Figma you can manipulate it however you choose.

You can use various tools within Figma such as frames, shapes, and text to create different designs with your image. You can also use frames to resize or crop your image if needed. The frame tool allows users to move and resize images without altering their quality or resolution.
