You can easily make your presentation more visual by adding images, icons, or gifs.

Drag and drop an image or GIF

If you want to add your own image or GIF, the easiest way to add it to Pitch is to drag it from your computer and drop it onto your slide.

  • Navigate to the slide you want to edit.
  • Open the folder on your computer that contains the image you want to add
  • Arrange Pitch and your folder window so that you can see them both.
  • Click and hold the file, drag it onto your slide, and release.

Paste an image or GIF from the clipboard

You can paste an image or GIF directly onto your slide. First, copy the file or the image or gif itself from the source (e.g. a website) by pressing Command + C (Control + C on Windows). Then, open your slide and press Command + V (Control + V on Windows) to paste your image.

💡 Did you know you can take a screenshot in a way that also copies it to the clipboard? On macOS, press Command + Control + Shift + 4. On Windows, press Alt + PrtScn. 

Looking to copy and paste images from other presentation tools?

This works with PowerPoint and Keynote. If you’re working with images from Google Slides you’ll need to take a few additional steps.

One way to achieve this is to download your Google Slides presentation as a PowerPoint document, open it in PowerPoint, and copy and paste your image onto your slide in Pitch. Alternatively:

  1. Copy your images into a Google Doc.
  2. Navigate to File > Download > Web Page (.html, zipped) to download your document as an .html file.
  3. The zip file will contain all images, which can then be dragged into a Pitch presentation.

Upload your own media from your computer

Click the Image button on the top toolbar – or hit the letter I on your keyboard – and select Upload image:

Select a JPG, PNG, SVG or GIF file. The file size limit is 5MB for our Starter plan, while our Pro plan has no limits. Click Open, and your image or GIF will be displayed on your slide.

Add an image from our content libraries

Click the Image button on the editor toolbar – or hit the letter I on your keyboard. Select either Unsplash for images, Giphy for GIFs, Icons8 for icons, or Brandfetch for logos on the left side, and search for a keyword. Click on the media you want to use and it will be added to your slide.

Replace an image or GIF

Changed your mind? No worries, you can swap out media in a few steps without having to reformat your slide. Click on your image block, and select Replace in the inline editor:

Alternatively, click on Replace media in the Design panel in the bubble bar:

You can either upload a different file from your computer, or select a different image, icon, or GIF from our integrated content libraries.
