What Files Can I Import to Figma?

Figma, the popular graphic design and prototyping platform, allows users to import files from other sources. In fact, with its powerful cloud-based platform, you can easily transfer files from other design and prototyping tools into Figma for editing and prototyping.

The most popular file types that can be imported into Figma include Illustrator (.ai), Photoshop (.psd), Sketch (.sketch), Adobe XD (.xd), PDF (.pdf), SVG (.svg), and Fonts (.otf). These file formats can be imported directly into Figma using the “Import” command located in the top right corner of the File menu. The imported files are then converted into vector objects in Figma.

In addition to these popular file types, Figma can also import any type of image or document format such as JPEGs, PNGs, GIFs, TIFFs, Word Documents, Excel Spreadsheets, and more. To import these types of documents simply drag and drop the files into your project window in Figma.

Figma also has a feature called “Components” which allows users to quickly reuse existing objects across multiple projects. Components are essentially pre-made designs that you can use as a starting point for your own designs. You can create new components from existing frames or layers in your project by selecting them and then clicking on the “Create Component” button from the context menu.


Figma is an incredibly versatile design tool that offers a wide variety of options for importing files. From popular design files like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to documents such as Word and Excel spreadsheets, there are many different file types that you can import into Figma to quickly create amazing designs.
