Requires can edit access to import files and assets
There are many ways to import files and assets into Figma. The best method will depend on what type of file you are wanting to import:
The table below details which methods are supported for each File type.
Import images and videos
You can use a variety of methods to import images, videos, and GIFs to Figma design files. These assets can be applied to any layer with a Fill property, including color and stroke fills.

Exporting and importing vectors often requires conversion. Depending on the quality of the exporter/importer, this can often be a lossy process.
As SVG is a lossless format, we recommend exporting SVG files.
There are a few ways to import vectors:
- Import entire Sketch or Figma design files that contain vectors
- Copy layers from other design tools and paste them in Figma
- Export vectors as SVGs and import them into Figma
Note: If you are working with large file sizes, especially files with multiple pages and lots of images, then you may encounter issues importing these into Figma.
Files still loading or images can't be viewed? We recommend breaking up the original file into smaller files before you try to import again.
Import entire design files
You can import entire design files into Figma by using the file importer or dragging and dropping files into the file browser.
Missing fonts? If you're using Figma in the browser then you will need to download the Figma Font Helper to access any locally available fonts.
The Figma Desktop app will already have access to local fonts by default. Learn more about managing missing fonts in our Manage missing fonts article.
