Facelift offers you an image editor for your images from the media library. Simply hover over an image in your media library and click on the pencil icon (either in the Media Library section of Facelift or when you add an image while creating a post). You will now see an overview of the image, click on Edit image to open it in the image editor.

Basic functions

At the top of the image editor you will find the basic functions.

You can use the + and - symbols to zoom in the image to be able to edit it better. The zoom setting has no effect on the edited image; to change the actual size, use the respective functions.

With the help of the two arrows you can undo or redo the last editing step. In addition, the clock symbol opens an editing history in which you can retrace every step you have taken. Click on the individual editing steps to see the corresponding status of the image at that time.

To save the edited image, click on Apply changes and then decide whether you want to overwrite the current image (Save) or save it as an own image (Save as copy).


Overlayed images, drawings, text, shapes and stickers are considered objects. This means you can move them freely on the background image by dragging and dropping. In addition, further options open when you click on an object.

On the left side, options are then displayed to rotate, mirror, duplicate and delete the object, as well as to make further editing adjustments via the cogwheel, which you can see above the image.

Clicking on the layer symbol opens an object overview of the various objects in the image. You can change the arrangement of the objects by dragging and dropping, for example to let certain objects overlap. You can also combine the individual objects into a single object using the Merge function.

Add images

You can add further images via the Open button. Either as a background image that replaces the current image or as an overlay image that is added as a new object. Overlay images can be moved freely by dragging and dropping and can be used for collages or your company logo, for example.

Overlay images are considered objects, which means you have further editing options here.


The Facelift image editor offers you various filter presets that you can use for your images. To do this, open the Filter menu item and click on the desired filter. You can also use several filters at the same time. To deselect a filter, simply click on the X.

For some filters you can adjust the intensity or other settings manually. To do this, select the corresponding filter and then click on the cogwheel symbol to make further settings.



You can change the size of your images by specifying the exact values in pixels or also in percent. Set the check mark at Maintain Aspect Ratio in order not to distort the image, but only to adjust the size. This can be helpful, for example, if the image must not exceed a certain file size.


Crop the image to the desired size. You can enter the size in pixels or adjust the frame to the format by dragging it. We also offer you format templates from which you can choose. These are based on the format specifications of the various social networks.


Rotate the image by 90° using the arrows or use the slider on the right to map every possible rotation. You also have the option here to mirror the image.

Editing options

The image editor offers you further editing options, you can add drawings, text, shapes and stickers to the image. These options are considered objects that you can move or further edit as described above. You also have the option of selecting a frame, rounding the corners of the image and adjusting the background colour.


You can draw freehand on the picture. Here you can adjust the colour, the brush type and the brush size. In addition to the suggested colours, you can select your own colour from the palette.


Add text to the picture. First click on the plus symbol and then type in your desired text. You can also choose the colour of the text and adjust the font.


The image editor offers you several shapes that you can add to the image by clicking on the desired shape. You can also change the colour via the object options.


Adding stickers works like adding shapes. However, there are entire sticker libraries behind the symbols from which you can select the desired sticker.


Select a frame for your image. Once you have selected a frame, you can adjust its size by clicking on the cogwheel symbol.


Round the corners of the image and determine the radius in which this should be done.


If there is a blank background, for example because of a rotation of the picture, you can adjust its colour here.
