Add images, animated GIFs and videos

You can add images, animated GIFs, and videos to your blocks, as well as to the Welcome screen and the Thank You screen. This will help you to brand up your typeforms with your own logos, design and photography. Be creative, it will improve people’s experience of your typeform!

Here we explain how to add media to your typeforms, going through the process of inserting images, animated GIFs, video, and audio.

Images

To insert an image into a question, Welcome screen, or Thank You screen, simply open the Block settings menu (click the little icon in the sidebar) and hit the ‘Add’ button in the Image section then browse to the image on your computer.

How to add images into a typeform

The images that you use on your typeforms must comply with the following specifications:

  • File format: JPEG, PNG, static and animated GIF (typeforms supports PNG files with transparent backgrounds).
  • File size: 2MB maximum.
  • Regarding image sizes, please refer to this article.

Animated GIFs

You can add animated GIFs to make your typeforms even more fun to complete. Support for animated GIFs is a free feature, allowing you to add that wow factor to your quizzes, tests, or even job application forms (who doesn’t want to work for a fun company?)

When uploaded, your GIFs will be cropped to the same sizes as all other picture file formats.

Here is an example typeform full of fun animated GIFs!

Video

You can insert YouTube or Vimeo videos into your typeforms. To add a video, click on a block to open the Block Settings menu. Go to the Video section and click the ‘Add’ button. Enter the link to the video and you’ll see the video appear in the Live preview. You can resize the video using the Size slider.

Audio

To add audio files to your typeform, these are the steps to follow:

  1. Upload your audio files to YouTube or Vimeo (individually)
  2. Add a Question group
  3. Use Rating question type as sub-questions
  4. Add the Youtube or Vimeo links with your audio files to the sub-questions

If you just want to display one audio file, almost every question type allows video links, so you just need to choose the question that best suits your needs and add the video link that contains your audio file.
