Create a thumbnail layout & use a spreadsheet to populate

Goal: Create a thumbnail layout and populate it using a spreadsheet




Have a simple layered key visual PSD ready before uploading to dipp's platform. See our article on how to prepare key visuals for production here.

A tutorial on how to bulk-create bundles is available here.




Step 1: Set up thumbnail layout

Upload your simple-layered PSD file and map it to elements types. Once done, click 'Done mapping' to continue.

KEY CONCEPT:  Element type will determine which column of the spreadsheet it will pull content from. 

Set up the composition for all required sizes first.

  • In the composition tab, you'll notice only one size will be visible. (By default, the size closest to your original file will be activated first.)

  • Turn the switch on to 'Show all available sizes'

  • Enable all required sizes and adjust the composition.
    Tip: Use 'Select similar elements' to edit the same element across different canvases.

Add styling and content after setting the composition

  • Add text styling to text elements

  • Add image styling to image elements and save

  • Lastly, download the spreadsheet template for this specific layout at the bottom of the screen 


Step 2: Fill out the spreadsheet

When hovering an asset in the asset library, you'll notice an link icon. Click on the icon to copy the image link to this asset. 

Remember, each column corresponds to an element in the layout, so when pasting links, make to paste in the correct column.

  • Copy and paste asset link into the spreadsheet

  • Type in additional copy into column text elements

  • Export as a CSV file


Step 3: Populate layout with spreadsheet

  • Under Brand layouts click to load the layout we just created

  • Once loaded, click Upload your CSV here button at the bottom of the screen to upload the CSV we just filled out 

And at this point, we're mostly done! Make sure the image and text styling has been applied to all content we just populated and make adjustments as needed.

Proceed to Review & download, set a custom naming format and download.
