How to Download Images from Wix Website

As a Wix Website Designer, I have run into this issue with finding images that are already used on a Wix website. Here's the work-around:


Finding images already used on a Wix website can be hard, whether they be in a gallery, or an image box, hoverbox or strip backgrounds – if you don't know the filename, it can be very hard to scroll through long Image Library folders of content trying to visually find the image you're looking for in order to reuse it or edit it. Believe me, I've done this many times! For example, if I wanted to find an image that is already used as a background or strip image on a page, or reuse it elsewhere, it's hard to figure out what that file is named or find it in the Image library. (Which is why I always try to name my files with searchable names so I can find them easier in the future).

HOW TO FIND + DOWNLOAD WIX IMAGES I've discovered a new work-around way to "find" these images for reusing, downloading and/or editing as desired. Open the Photo Studio for an image:

Click on Image > Settings (gear icon) > Adjust (three volume dials icon) Open the Photo Studio If the image is in a strip background or hoverbox:

Click on Change Background or Change Strip Background or Change Page Background > Click on the Photo Editor Icon (three volume dials icon)


This will open the Photo Studio editor, see below, which will allow you to crop, resize, enhance, adjust, apply filters, or even cut out an image. You can also add overlays, text and backgrounds to images. This isn't Photoshop, but it does give you some basic tools that I find useful – and, more importantly, if you make any edits in this editor (such as resizing by just 1 pixel), you can "Save" the new version of the image, and it will now appear at the top of your Image Library for your Wix website. This is great, because you can then download the image, rename it (so you can find it more easily next time), edit it as desired, or reuse it elsewhere on your website.

A couple of cool tools in the Photo Studio include the vignette (to give your photo a subtle vignette shadow or brightness around the edges), or the cut out tool works well as a rudimentary clipping out tool for objects. You can also rotate, flip, resize images at will.


To find the Photo Studio tool in your Wix Blog:


Click on Image Click on the Photo Studio Icon (looks like three volume dials)

If you have a Gallery of images in your Wix Blog, this trick doesn't work, unfortunately, you can't get into the Photo Studio editor from image galleries in the Wix blog.
