Add and place images freely with the option of resizing
The customizability of the presets, brand design and copy is really good. However, on the website (using a Mac), i don't believe there is an option to add images apart from the background image.
It would help if the option of adding more images and resizing them freely was present. Our agency have a ton of content that requires smaller imagery with a single unifying design.
Thanks so much for your patience! I’m happy to announce that we now have a beta for you to try with the ability to place your images anywhere on the design and freely resize them (and even put them in a shape :)).
If you’d like to give the beta a spin, please fill out this quick form: http://bit.ly/sppifbeta
We can’t wait to hear your feedback!

As a work around to this issue I have been uploading images as logos b/c it allows you to place and resize the logos. I'm going to need to request beta access to check it out. What I would like is he ability to crop images once uploaded.
I created a collage to place on a quilt. The site tells me I can customize the size, but when I put the size into the computer, the site tells me I can only do up to 20 X 20.......
is there a way to truly customize the collage to the size needed.
To be able to overlap images for the instagram stories. I wanted to create a video, where the images appear to be stack on each other. But everytime i add one it makes a divided screen collage, cannot put one on one another.

Agree with this our product photos are all the same size when using layouts sometimes I want to keep a large box but reduce the size of the image inside but this is not available, would love to see it currently I have to convert my images to PNG and bring them in which is time consuming.
wow. can't believe such a simple option is NOT an option.
agreeing with Solipsons comment why hasnt this been addressed? even trying to guess at the dimensions and then upload the image it bumps it out to whatever the cell is on the template.. soooooooooooooooo frustrating! people are paying money for this app Adobe is PROFITING form our shared work. the least you can do is make it work!!!!
Just wanted to put some photo above another with transparency to create effects and made both of them in one photo
Right now, when I attempt to upload my own photo (or select from the free database), the image will automatically set as the background photo. Please update this feature so that photos can be made to be used as a background photo, or to be used as a standalone photo that can be moved, resized and placed accordingly.
Maybe this already exists but I just can't see it?
Anyway, the grid-snapping is very nice for alignment...sometimes. When things are above a certain size, they don't seem to recognize the presence of some lines. Making them smaller and finding the line then resizing works fine most of the time as a troubleshooting measure, but its seems especially arduous when the system is so otherwise easy. Eyeballing it would feel more satisfying/close to what the user's intention is when the grid doesn't allow for the positioning they want.
Hi can you please have the option of inserting pictures not only as background but at the same level as one would do to add a text or a logo which does not restrict a user to have pictures only within a layout frame but be flexible to put a picture wherever they would want and be flexible to move them without being restricted by the layout set up.

Yah, if I want to use the mutliple icon I must create it in another software and upload as an image very frustrating.
I can't believe that you haven't been able to fix the autoscale issue in Posts. It's nearly 2 years now and the app is completely unusable, as you never know which picture fist in.
I second this!
17 months... any update? This is incredibly frustrating. I spent two hours thinking that Spark Post was placing my image as the background, when in reality, there is just no capability to adjust the size of the image, resulting in my entire canvas being covered by a pixelated mess of the image I'm trying to use.

Ive had to use canva to create a 'background' png/jpg with the proper size of image, then upload this into Spark Post. so instead of replacing Canva, i need to use both.
My vote for the same. Photo layering
+1 Unbelievable that the product is out there with this massive limitation.

I agree - the inability to simply resize an image is becoming a deal breaker for me. Until this is possible, I'm sticking with Canva.

Unable to add an image. Keep getting this error message: (Error code: TRNSUPLD401). Can someone help?
