Using images

The only place you need to add images to is the Media Library. These can be in any format, for example, JPEG, or PNG. These images will then be optimized and scaled by our CDN before being displayed to your users.

All other images that will be available on your site will come through either the API streams that you're using and will automatically be brought through to your pages (these include icons, logos, and product images), or your developers will specify how the Frontastic Editor accesses these images and how you can use them within your Tastics. For example, using a Header Tastic should include your brand logo but you won't need to add this, your developers will have done this for you when they created the Tastic.

However, there are some Tastics that you will need to add your own images, for example, the Tile Tastic.

Once you've uploaded your images to the Media Library, navigate to your the page you want to add it to

If the image isn't available in your library, you can upload a new image from the overlay screen. Click the blue + icon and select your file, or drag your media file into the overlay window:
