Accessing the Image Editor

Act-On provides a convenient way to make basic edits to images right within your account. You can access the Image Editor in two places:

Content > Image Library


Content > Branding > Logos


Simply locate the image file you want to edit, hover over it and click on Edit.


Using the Image Editor

After you click on Edit, the Image Editor opens in a new browser tab:

You can edit the image file with the following controls:


  • Select a part of the image
  • Widen the image by dragging the controls outside the image boundaries
  • Enforce a predefined aspect ratio:
    • Free (default)
    • Portrait
    • Square
    • Landscape
  • Rotate the image 90 degrees
  • Flip the image horizontally or vertically
  • Tilt the image by dragging the degrees slider below the image



  • Choose set pixel width and height
  • Allow the image to stretch during resizing by opening the lock icon


Select from 4 filter options: Chrome, Fade, Mono, and Noir.



  • Control image color settings by adjusting the sliders:
    • Brightness
    • Contrast
    • Exposure
    • Saturation



  • Add circle or square shapes to your image
    • Change colors or select from different styles such as Fill or Thick Outline
  • Add Text


Other Options

  • You can revert any changes by clicking the undo icon
  • The Cancel button will close the editor window
  • The Save button will open a change confirmation window
    • The saved image will overwrite the existing image (Save As is not currently supported)

Happy editing!
