Adding an image

You can find more information here.
Note: you can only upload .jpg, .png, and .gif files up to 15MB.
 

Improving Image Quality

To ensure that you maintain the quality of your photos and decrease loading time to a minimum when uploading to Wix, please follow the guidelines here.
 

How can I let viewers upload their images?

You can use 123FormBuilder to allow your visitors to upload files via the Contact Form! You can read more here.
You can find information and instructions about our 123FormBuilder app here.
 

Will visitors be able to download or print images from my Wix site?

The right click button for galleries is blocked, however visitors can right-click standalone images. The best form of protection against the downloading or printing of images from your site would be for you to watermark your images before uploading them.
 

Can I download an image from Wix?

It is not possible to download files uploaded through the Wix editor, you can load it on the editor and use the print screen button to capture it and edit it on a picture editing program.

      Hi,

      I fixed the issue for you by selecting an image on your site and changing the style to one without the tape.

      I've saved the site for you. Please make sure to publish when you are done editing to see the changes live.

       

      Best regards

    I have a trouble with HTML5: 'impossible' uploading, editing or using any image, with or without frame. And I don't know why... It's 'funny' (not actually), but I can open (by clicking on 'plus' icon and 'Clip Art', after; then I have an icon of an forearm... buuut... doesn't also works because is impossible to change this clip art! What happening? I have another Wix website (another account) for long time (about years) and that uses another way to editing, by Flash I guess; this one is perfect and I use all Wix features... I don't know what I can do... Anybody can help me, please? --- I use Firefox updated.

    Hi All,

     

    I am a premium user of Wix and I need to host an image directly on my domain on Wix, is this possible?

    Because I need to link an image on another site, I used photobucket already but site makes too long links. shortening em with bitly doesn't work as well.

    any input would be much appreciated

      Hi Thomas,

      Most likely your images size is too small and you will need to upload a larger image size to Wix editor.

       

      You can use the following program to change the image size.

       

      To ensure that you maintain the quality of your photos and decrease loading time to a minimum when uploading to Wix, please follow the guidelines here.

      You can find more information about how to upload pictures here.

    image on another template

    Hi,

    I have found an image on another template that I really like and would like to use on my website, however when I copy and paste or save it, and then up load it an error occurs.  I have tried to search for it but have had no luck.  Is there another way I could get access to it.  It is from the home and garden templates and is on the front home page of the garden supplies (e commerce).  It is the clip art pic at the bottom of the page above the footer, with the tree and scarecrow.

    Thanks,

    Jessica

    For some reason I can't add images to my site in the editor.. Whenever I click add > image > image/image without frame, nothing happens.. I don't get a pop-up from which I can choose an image or upload my own like in the instruction video.

    Furthermore, when I go to the settings of the image that came with the template, and click 'change image', again nothing happens.. Does somebody know what's wrong or what I'm doing wrong??
