How to edit images

Click on your image, and then on Design in the bubble bar on the right. To open this panel, you can also click the right arrow in the inline editor. Here is what you can do to edit your image:

  • Apply a filter.

  • Reduce the opacity.

  • Add a blur effect.

  • Round the corners.

  • Add an overlay.

  • Add a shadow.

  • Set an image as a background.

And there’s more! Open the Layout section for the following options:

  • Resize your image by manually entering the desired height and width in pixels.

  • Rotate an image by entering the degree by which you’d like to change it.

  • Flip your image vertically or horizontally.

  • Resize your images proportionally.

  • Unlocking the aspect ratio of the image.

How to crop an image

You can crop an image by double clicking it or selecting it and then clicking Crop image, which can be found in the design panel or in the inline editor. Once you do this, you can use the slider that appears to zoom into the image. When zooming into an image, the image point at the center of the block is kept fixed. You can then drag the image around to crop it to your heart's content.

How to replace an image

At any time, you can easily replace your image. Whenever you do so, Pitch automatically crops the image based on the previous image size and pans the image within the frame to save you time. We try to algorithmically identify the prominent part of the image. Learn more about how we use AI at Pitch. If you are not satisfied with the results, you can always pan the image. Just click Crop in the inline editor and drag the image to move the point of focus.

When you replace an image, all previous edits like filters, rounded corners, blur, or color overlay will be applied to the new image as well. There are a few ways you can replace an image:

  • Select the image and click on Replace in the inline editor or Replace media in the Design panel. Then upload a new image or select one from our media integrations.

  • Drag and drop a new image on top of an existing one (either from your local files or from the web). As you’re dragging the image, wait to see a blue border and then release your mouse.

  • Find an image online and copy it via the right-click menu. Select the image on your slide and paste to replace it.

  • Copy any image in your Pitch presentation, select an image you’re looking to replace, and paste.

How to hyperlink images

To add a URL link to an image, select it and go to the Design panel. Scroll down to the Link section. Enter the URL and click anywhere outside the input to save the link.

When you hover on the image in the editor, you’ll see the link preview. Clicking on the link always opens a new tab. Image links work also in the player, but the link preview doesn’t show up.

It’s not yet possible to hyperlink from background images and other blocks like shapes. Setting a linked image as a background removes the link.

Clicking on an image with a link in an exported PDF opens the web browsers.
