How Do You Add Materials to Figma?

Figma is a powerful design tool that allows you to create beautiful visuals without needing to know any code. It’s become increasingly popular in recent years as a go-to design program for web and UI designers, as well as product managers, marketers, and others who need to create visuals quickly and easily.

One of the most important features of Figma is the ability to add materials to your design projects. Materials can include images, vectors, fonts, and more, allowing you to customize and personalize your designs.

Adding materials to Figma is easy. First, select the “Materials” tab from the left side of the screen.

This will open up a window with several categories of materials including images, vectors, fonts, colors, and more. Select one of these categories to view all available materials in that category.

Once you’ve selected a category of materials, you can then add individual items from that category by clicking on each item or dragging it onto the canvas. You can also search for specific items using the search bar at the top of the window. This makes it easy to find just the right item for your project.

Once you’ve added an item to your project, you can customize it by changing its size or shape using Figma’s selection tools. You can also add text or shapes on top of existing items and adjust their color or opacity using Figma’s color picker tool.
