Introduction to the Image Manager

The Image Manager allows you to temporarily store images you want to use for projects either as layers or background images. It gives you quick access to these images across the  Photo EditorCollage Maker, and Graphic Designer

Important Note: The Image Manager is designed for short-term storage. Images will be removed when your browser cache and/or cookies are cleared. To upload images for long-term storage, you can save them directly to your BeFunky account. 

Adding Images to the Image Manager

You can add images to the Image Manager from a variety of places: 

  • Your device: Click the Computer button.
  • Stock Images: Click Search Stock Images to choose from over a million free stock images. Click an image to add it to the Image Manager.
  • Directly from the canvas: Right-click the image on the canvas and select Add to Image Manager. If there are multiple layers, this will only be available for the background image, or after flattening the layers. 

Or access the Image Library with the (...) button and add images that you've saved to BeFunky or Google Photos

Pro Tip: To delete photos from your Image Manager, hover over the image and click the X icon. You can also right-click on the thumbnail and select Remove from the drop-down menu. 

Adding Images as Layers

You can use images in the Image Manager to add to your project as a layer. Hover over the thumbnail you'd like to add and double-click. Or click and drag the image from the Image Manager over to the canvas to add it as a layer. You can also right-click on the thumbnail and select Add as Layer from the drop-down menu.

Pro Tip: Layers added to your project can be managed in the Layers and Groups tab, located in the bottom navigation bar.

Select a New Background Image

If you'd like to replace the current image on the canvas, right-click on an image and select Set as Background. If you've made any adjustments to the current image, you'll get a warning that this will remove any unsaved changes. Press Yes to continue or click Cancel to go back and keep working on your current image.

Saving to BeFunky 

Hover over the thumbnail and the icon to save to BeFunky will appear in the lower-left corner. Alternatively right-click on an image to Save to BeFunky. This will upload your current image to your BeFunky account and store it in your Image Library so you can access it later.
