Custom Export

Custom exports let you adjust the aspect ratio and size of an asset to download. You also have the option to export the file in different formats. Whether you are a designer working with different resolutions or formats, a social media manager formatting for an Instagram post, or freelancer who wants to give their client a variety of options, custom exports give you total control over your asset deliverability.

Changing Aspect Ratio

  • Use the width and height adjustment to fit the asset to its final location. Whether it's on your website, social account, or newsletter, you can make sure the image is precisely the shape and size you need.

Adding a Suffix

  • Use the suffix field to help differentiate your asset exports. Any text in the suffix field is added after the file name on export. For example, adding “Instagram” into the suffix field for a file named “cutecat.png” will create the file name “cutecatInstagram.png.”

Export Different File Formats

  • JPG - most common file used in the photography industry and great for highly detailed photographic images.

  • PNG - versatile file types that are ideal for digital art like logos and graphic designs.

  • WEBP - great for web developers who want efficient compression for images that live on the web.

  • GIF - we now offer exports for animations!

*Custom exports are only available for images, but not videos or files at this time. Stay tuned!*

CDN Links (Pro and Enterprise Subscriptions Only)

CDN Links (Content Distribution Networks) allow for the quick transfer of assets needed for loading Internet content including HTML pages, javascript files, stylesheets, images, and videos. Quickly generate links to your Air assets by customizing height, width, format, and size for any use case. Many users generate CDN links for their websites, Shopify pages, and more! You can generate CDN links for images from the asset modal's ellipses button, just to the left of the download options:

  • Customize your CDN options and then copy the link to distribute that asset across the web. Only image assets are compatible for Pro plans currently, but on our Enterprise plan, custom CDN links can be generated for boards!

  • Please note that CDN links generate a proxy image that will display at a compressed resolution, not the original level of quality.

CDN links are currently only supported for the following file types:

  • jpg/jpeg

  • png

  • webp

  • gif
