Images in Figma

Should I use an Image as a Component in Figma? If it is going to be reuse many time. kindly let me know. Thanks

An image in Figma is just a Fill type. This can be applied to a frame, a rectangle, or really any other shape. Creating a component would be helpful if you plan on reusing the parent element that the image belongs to. For example a card component could have a rectangle with an image fill.

Otherwise if it’s just the image that you want to apply to other objects I’d recommend turning it into a style.

Hope that makes sense. Happy to dive in deeper here though :slight_smile:
