Custom Images In Templates A-Z

This is probably a biggie, since I’ve received a number of calls from people asking me if they can change the white board of logos I have in my templates.

The short answer is YES!

The long answer is also “yes”, but I’ll get in to a little more detail to get you up to speed about them “image spots”.

How To Spot Customizable Images In Templates

Here are a couple of samples, which should make it perfectly clear.

In some templates you can just leave the image I have in there and upload nothing of your own. For example, the money image in Ancient Gold.

How To Create The Perfect Image

It’s easy. First the size- make it 800 px in width and 450 px in height. But that’s just a guideline. Feel free to use any other size as we’ll do the resizing to make it look perfect.

Here are a couple of ideas for things you can display in the image spot:

  • Your logo
  • Your product
  • A stock photo
  • A screen shot of your site/service/software
  • Just a plain background and some text

Transparency

In some cases you might want to upload a transparent image. But before you do, check if the background color in that video is not the same as your image.

Ecovers

If you have one of those e-covers, it’s best to upload the flat version or a version with no reflections.

Stock Photos

In case of a stock photo, try to use a photo that is at least 400 pixels wide. Any less than that and it will look pixelerated in the video. But don’t go overboard with the 1600px photos (they typically cost more).

As I said- the best is to use a photo between 400 to 800 pixels in width.

File Size

Try to keep the total file size of all images you’re uploading under 2mb. If you don’t the submission may not go through.

All in all- use your common sense to decide what image would look best in your video.

I hope you found that helpful and if you haven’t claimed your video just yet, this may save you the phone call 🙂

    1. Good point, Fendi!
      You can use jpeg, png, gif etc
      We can also put in psd and ai files, but you’ll have to email these in manually, because the upload form may not allow you to upload them.

  1. Chris – Thanks for the pointers on the images.

    Is it possible to bypass the image completely? Or would that mess the timing up for the rest of the video, in relation to the sound?

    Thanks!

    1. Kevin, you could try creating some text with transparent background and putting it in a png or psd. You could utilize the image spot for text this way 🙂
