What is the Image library and how can I use it?

Focus:  The focus of this self-help article is to provide steps and information to copy an existing document.

What is the image library?: The image library is a new repository for images that you can use over and over again, once you uploaded them one time into PandaDoc.

The image library can be used with the following Builder “Blocks” that has options to include an image: Text, Image, Pricing table, Cover Page, Page Header and Page footer, Cover Page Block – Background image and Design Options -Background image. It also can be used with your Catalog items.

Who has access to the image library?: All team members in your PandaDoc account will have access to previously added images that were added to the library. Please note:. Permissions and Custom Permissions are available to setup access/restrictions to these images.

PandaDoc Plans: The image library is only for Business and Enterprise plans.

In the following example, we will be discussing using the Image Library with a template that was created using the document builder. However, you can also do this in documents and content library items.

Step 1:  Open any template, document or content library item that was created in the Builder.

Step 2:  Click on an existing or add a new block that can use images. In the following example we will look at the “Image” block.

Step 3: Adding an image. By clicking on the “+” we can add a new image from your computer. Upload the image and you will see 3 options: 1. Choose Another (to choose another file), 2. Use Image (to add to the block) and 3. Use and Save to Library (Add to the image library).

Step 4: Using existing images from the “Image Library.”  Click on the “+” to insert an image from the “Image Library.” Go to “Image Library” to see a list of those images and select the one that you would like to use. To preview prior to inserting, click on the little eye icon that shows at the top right to expand the images.
