How To Export Images Out Of Figma

Hi everyone in this video, we're going to look at exporting images from fig a kind of a general purpose exporting images. Um We'll look at some more specific use cases for developers and colleagues and stuff in the upcoming videos. But yeah, let's do this general purpose one. So you can export anything. Uh Let's have a look, there's logo, I need the logo exported. What you need to do is other programs you'd select it and go file, export something like that. This one here you apply export settings to. So I said you selected, I'm gonna apply some settings to it and then you can go through and pick this is the main one. OK? What kind of format it is PNG JP, GSVG or PDF. OK. If you're new to it SVG is is scalable vector graphics great for things like logos and icons because they are like resolution independent. That's the wrong key scale. OK? You can see they get bigger and bigger without pixel. In the past, you probably would have used a PNG because that allows can you see some transparen...

cy around the background as opposed to J PGS? Now this preview kind of updates. I think you have to like click off it, click on again. Let's go off on, let's have a look at the preview. It's still there. They're showing me the background anyway, this a league sport with a solid background. It won't be clear. So SPGS when you can do them icons, great logos, great. Anything. That's that kind of victory, simple straight lines. That's what SVG is, right? Scalable vector graphic and pngs are helpful for. I'll show you let's do JPEG because that's the the opposite of a PNG as a JPEG. OK? And VG, so J pegs are really good if there is no need for transparency and you've got a lot of color information, something like this SVG won't know what to do with it. OK? Because it's not a vector graphic like these kind of like linear shapes of text and icons. So J pegs first best for this J pegs have loads of colors. They can be compressed, nice and small, they look great. So I'd say export and I'd say you are AJ PEG. What you'll notice is the name here. Like if I want to export this, I just click the button and it tells me here you go export this thing. I'm putting my images here on just an empty folder on my desktop. You'll notice that it comes the the layer name over here is what FMA will use for the name of your file. So I can save it there. Let's have a little look. OK? And there's my JPEG. Now, how big is it gonna be? FIG is not really made for compressing this down. You might have to use something else. OK? Something like tiny JP G is a good solution or using something like Photoshop to get the file size down. They can be a little bit chunky coming out of FIG A. You also notice that's the file name. So if you want to be clever, OK, you can go in here and let's call this one IMG woman one. OK? And now when I go to export, it'll use that kind of naming convention. All right. J pegs good for images with no transparency. SVG is good for any sort of vector linear stuff. When we use a PN GP NGS are great for um a kind of half and half. So this one here has a circle and it has transparency. So you can't use a JPEG. So this image here can't be an SPG or a JPEG. So it has to be that PNG because it'll allow transparency around the outside. So other things that we haven't talked about is the sizing guide here. OK? If this will depend on of, let's say web design, often you'll supply your web developer with A one X and A two X depending on how they are making the site, how they are dealing with responsive images. This is a question you'll have to talk to with a developer. OK. Um You know, do you want to just cut the middle and be 1.5 and not have any sort of changing of images? It just means there's some monitors that image will look great at this kind of smaller one X size. And by one X it is going to be 100 and 74 by 100 and 74. If I export this one, OK, it is going to be double that size. OK? Which just means on fancy new laptops or computers, which is most of them. Now, uh it will look better and that one X will load fast and then be small but won't look as great. So often you can add more than one. So I'm going to export this PNG in both uh one and two X suffix. OK? That's a common practice for adding. So it's going to be still called ellipse too. OK? But one of them is going to have no suffix at the end, you might do this to be clear with yourself. And the suffix just means it's gonna go on the end. OK? Uh Let's stick it in there. Let's have a little look. So I'm gonna switch to this view. So we've got one X and two X can you see the file size differences still got transparency, you can kind of see the quality difference. It would be a little hard on this video but I'm sure you can see all the big pixels. This is getting a little bit old now, most websites will probably try and do this two X. Not always other things that are useful when you are exporting. Let's say that I want to export this. Um I'm gonna double click, I wanna export just this kind of circle again. So I'm gonna go ah Yep, I need that. What is it PNG transparency? There is an option in here that says see these little dotted lines. You can say actually ignore overlapping layers. But if I turn it off, watch this icon down here. There you go. It's gonna, you know it's gonna, it's grabbed the back part of that image. It's also grabbed the green box and all this other stuff. So it depends basically it's using the edges of their lips and grabbing everything else that overlaps. So you may or may not need it. I show everybody I never need it. There will be some time you will need it. We talked about one X and two X but let's say you do want say you've got an icon. I'm just going to grab one out of here. What we got. I got this. I don't even remember where I made that. OK. So I got it from somewhere. Let's say I need to export this. OK. I'm going to export. But instead of being an SVG, I've been asked to be supplied at a specific size. So I'm going to be a PNG so it still has transparency. It should really be an SVG. But let's just say in here instead of one X, we can type it in, we can say I want it to be, you know, a width of 500. So you put a W at the end or an H for the height, OK? You want it to be 500 pixels high or pixels wide. OK? And that would just force it, it assumes pixels. OK? So let's do that and let's do another one. And that is going to be say 100 pixels maybe for a thumbnail version of it. Let's export both pngs. I've left the suffix on theirs at times two, which is not good. OK? But there it is there. That's my white version. You can barely see it. That's the big version. You can see the wheels, they have transparency. OK? Uh But one is obviously 1000 pixels or 500 pixels and one is 100 if you have applied like export to a few different things and you kind of like go through and make a change. So you change one of your color styles and it updates a lot of things and you're like, do I have to go and individually go and apply all these again? Uh No, OK. You can export them kind of as one big go by going up to your little fig icon go to file. And if you hit this one just says export, it's gonna go through and say, hey, look, here's all the things that you've added export settings to. And you can say, OK, I need that, that don't need that, but I need these three and just click export and we'll do it in one big go and put them in there, replace existing files. There we go. Simple. All my friends that is exporting images out of fig. A hope you found it useful. I'll see you in the next video.
