Select the calendar of the Library that you want to access.

💡 Note: Each calendar has its own associated Library. Be sure to choose the right calendar to access the correct Library! 

Find your Library 

Look for the book icon located in the top right corner of the app. Give it a click, and voilà! You’re now inside your Library.

You’ll find all the visual assets you previously uploaded to Loomly, as well as any designs you created and exported using Canva or from Google Drive.

💡 Loomly Tip: Integrate with Canva to seamlessly bring your Canva designs to Loomly so you can schedule to all of your favorite social media channels. New to Canva? Good news, you can get started with Canva for free.

Filter visual assets efficiently

To locate your older visual assets quickly, you can use the filter button. It’s your handy tool for finding exactly what you’re looking for based on asset type, labels, and more.

💡 Loomly Tip: We strongly recommend labeling your assets. By adding labels, you can organize items in your library and streamline campaign tracking. When you create a post using one or multiple items from your library, make sure to select the appropriate labels as well.

Haven’t labeled your items yet? Don’t worry, you can easily apply labels in bulk. Just select all the assets you want to update and click ‘Label Asset‘ at the top right.

Editing videos

Videos have taken the center stage in social media, with 91% of consumers favoring video content in 2023 and the number is continuing to rise. If you’re not sure how to create visually appealing video content for your audience, we have two methods for you.

First: you can leverage Canva’s video editing tools to perfect your video content, adding that extra touch of creativity or branding to your videos such as an animated intro or outro. Once you’re done, you can export the video to Loomly for post scheduling.

The second option is right from Loomly. With Loomly Studio, you can easily repurpose long-form videos into shorter sound bites for YouTube Shorts, Instagram Reels, and TikToks.

With the perfect duo of Loomly and Canva available at your disposal, creating engaging video content has never been easier.

Edit to match every social media channel with Loomly Studio 

Editor’s Note: The Post Builder was updated in February 2024. Please check out this blog post for detailed updates.

Each social media platform comes with its unique set of aspect ratio requirements, which can sometimes be a hassle to navigate when publishing multiple platforms. Fortunately, you can easily meet each social media platform’s requirements by using our built-in image and video editor, Loomly Studio, to fine-tune your visual assets in the Post Builder.

💡 Note: To use Loomly Studio, you will need to access it via your computer. Find out how you can access Loomly Studio here.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Upload your visual assets into Loomly’s Library through your mobile app
  2. Transition to your computer and create a new post in the Post Builder
  3. Optimize visual assets in either the base or the fine–tuning step of Post Builder: You have access to Loomly Studio in either the Base Panel or the Fine-Tuning Panel.
