Supported Files

Faithlife’s digital asset manager supports a variety of file types.

  • Image: all standard image formats, including PNG, JPEG, GIF, and SVG.

    Note: We strongly advise using PNG files. While the digital asset manager can handle all standard image types, some types are automatically converted to the PNG format, which can increase the file size. This can create problems since the current maximum file size is 25 mb. You can easily convert images to PNG format using a variety of freely available tools.

  • PDF: if text is identified in the document, PDFs are text-searchable.
  • Video: all standard video formats, including MOV, MP4, WMV, and AVI.
  • PowerPoint: all standard PowerPoint formats, including PPT, PPTX, etc.
  • Audio: all standard audio formats, including MP3, WAV, AIFF, AAC, etc.
  • Word: all documents are text-searchable.
  • Text: all documents are text-searchable.
  • Other: The digital asset manager will support any uploaded files (e.g., ZIP, Otf, XLSX, Javascript, CSS text files, etc.).
