Library

Library is where all your files are kept, you can use these files when designing slides or adding background music to playlists. Files can be either uploaded directly to our servers or by pasting a web URL of the file. You can also create folders to organize the files better.

Supported file types

  • Images
    • .png – Recommended file format for computer generated graphics, supports transparency.
    • .jpg .jpeg – Recommended file format for photos.
    • .gif – Animated gif files don’t play, they show only the first frame. Images are supported, but not recommended as gif images are limited to 256 colors.
    • .tif .tiff – Files are automatically converted to jpg.
    • .svg – Recommended file format for vector graphics as they don’t lose quality when enlarged.
  • VIdeo
    • .mp4 .m4v – Recommended file format (h.264 or h.265 encoding recommended). If the video bitrate is more than 8Mbit/s, the video is automatically converted to lower bit-rate. A video with a bit-rate of 8Mbit has 1 Megabyte per running second of video, so a 10 second clip is 10 Megabytes and so on. Your videos should take up less space than 1 Megabyte per running second.
    • .3g2 .3gp .3gpp .avi .dv .flv .m2ts .m4v .mkv .mov .mp4 .mpeg .mpg .mts .mxf .ogg .swf .vob .webm .wmv – Files are automatically converted to .mp4 videos,
  • Presentation (PowerPoint, KeyNote)
    • .ppt .pptx .key – Each slide in presentation is converted to a .png image at 1920 x 1080 resolution. Unfortunately animation effects are lost because our software is not a PowerPoint playback tool and we can’t have the support for proprietary functionality these tools have. If you design the slides in our editor, you can animate elements as well.
  • Fonts
    • .woff – Recommended file format for fonts.
    • .ttf – Files are automatically converted to .woff format.
  • Audio
    • .mp3 – Recommended file format for audio.
    • .wav .ogg .m4a .flac – Files are automatically converted to .mp3 format.
  • Document
    • .pdf – Each page in the file is converted to a .png image at 1920 x 1080 resolution. You can also use website plugin to display the file directly from a web URL.

Creating from URL

You can paste the URL of a file, this way you don’t have to download it to your computer first. Our server will download the file directly and a copy of the file will be stored in your library, this way even if the original file is no longer available (maybe it was removed by the owner), you can still use it. The maximum file size is 200 MB, if the file is greater, you should download it to your computer and upload instead.

FAQ

What is the storage limit?

We don’t limit how much files you can store, but rather expect the users not to abuse it. We do monitor it so we can detect malicious use of the free storage.

How big files can I upload?

The maximum size of one file can be up to 2 GB. PDF files can contain up to 50 pages, larger files should be split before uploading.

How to split PDF files? 

It is actually very easy to split PDF files, it is essentially printing a range of pages as a PDF. In this example we’ll be using Chrome to open the PDF file and then printing the page (Ctrl/Cmd + P shortcut) and selecting a page range of 1 – 50. Then repeat the process with 51-100 and so on.
