  2. Click the Add button next to FTP/sFTP.
  3. Add your FTP access info in the modal that comes up.
  4. Give your integration a name you can refer to.

Using its features

Once the integration is in place, you can use the FTP/sFTP specific features with your theme. Here’s what you can do:

Theme access settings

You will need to enable your integration for each theme that you want to allow using as a source for images in the editor. You can do this in the dashboard by clicking on the preferences icon () on the right side of a theme title.

When enabled, the option to set a base directory to access images from is available. For example, if you want to limit access to a certain project folder.

Theme settings

Note: you will need to be an admin or owner on the account to have access to these settings.

Accessing your remote images

In the editor, when adding in images, along with being able to upload local images, next to the upload option will also be an option to import from your server files where you can browse and preview images to pick the one you need.

Note: this will not appear as an option if it has been disabled for a particular theme by an account admin or owner.


When you’re ready to export your email or page, you will be able to choose where you want to save your images on your remote server. URLs will automatically update in your HTML file based on the base URL set in the integration settings.
