How to Add Custom Tag Icons to Your ThingLinks

Andrew Beelitz

Would you like to create and use unique icons for your tags in ThingLink content? It’s simple – let us guide you through it!

ThingLink’s new and expanded range of icons and colours

We recently expanded our ThingLink editor with more than 2000 icon options, offering an enormous range of styles and colors to perfectly align with the essence and context of your creations.

And as if that wasn’t enough, we then widened the range of icon colorways even further by introducing the new feature Icon Color Picker! Take a look at how this works in the short clip below.

Custom icons for branded and aligned content

We recognize the importance of aligning with your brand aesthetic and engaging your audience with exactly the right visuals. If crafting bespoke icons for your ThingLink scenes is important to you, don’t worry, it’s a straightforward process!

SVG format for your custom icons

The most important thing to note is that your icons MUST be in SVG (scaleable vector format) before you upload them to ThingLink.

Create your own custom icons from scratch or use an icon library

In an accompanying blog, Create and Edit Your Own ThingLink Custom Icons, we show you how to create your own custom icons from scratch. However, if you would like to browse some pre-made icons, we recommend that you visit iconfinder.com which provides almost 8 million icons which you can download. Many of these are free to use, others are paid-for. We provide full instructions on how to use the site at our support article here but rest assured – it’s super simple!

Once you have downloaded your chosen or created icons, you then need to integrate them into your ThingLink tags via the editor!

Using custom icons for your tags

Once you have your custom icons ready as SVG files, here is how you add them to your ThingLink content.

Open your ThingLink image or video and follow the steps below

  1. Click on a tag or create a new one
  2. Click ‘Change icon’ 
  3. Scroll down and click ‘Upload icon’. 
  4. Select any SVG file from your computer and click ‘Upload’.
  5. Once the icon is uploaded, you can select it via the ‘Change icon’ interface.
