    Generate Figma file previews from links

    December 6, 2023
    Feature image for Generate Figma file previews from links

    Campsite automatically generates image previews from your Figma links, making it easier for your team to view and comment on designs without needing to open or log in to Figma.

    Image previews keep your team focused on the specific frames you want feedback on and can be used as a permanent archive for design version history.

    Connect your Campsite and Figma accounts from the account settings page.

    connect Campsite and Figma from the account settings page

    Once connected, paste a link to a Figma file, page, or frame into the post composer, and Campsite will automatically generate an image preview.
