How do I add a video to my design?

To add a video to your design, open your design in the PosterMyWall editor, and click on 'My Uploads’ on the left bar along the editor page. Pick one of the two options:

  • Upload videos from your device. You can add videos from your device’s files, Google Drive, Facebook, or Dropbox. If you're using a laptop, you can also drag and drop a video from your folder to the editor page to begin uploading.  
  • Add stock videos using online stock resources. We offer free stock videos by Storyblocks and Pixabay to all customers, while stock videos from Getty Images (up to 3 at once) are free for Premium and Premium Plus subscribers only.

You can add up to 4 videos, and a maximum of 3 videos by GettyImages, per design. Customers using a free basic account will have to pay an additional two dollars to download their design if they use stock videos from GettyImages. Otherwise, a large watermark is added to the downloaded design.

Adding a video to your email campaign

You can add short videos to your email campaign, which are auto-converted to a 10-second GIF without sound. This conversion is done to reduce the size of the email, which ensures emails will load efficiently in recipients' inboxes. Emails with longer loading times may cause recipients to turn back before the email gets a chance to display properly. 

Here's a helpful article showing specifically how you can add a video to your email campaign.

You can browse a range of fully customizable email templates to add videos to.
