Add Bynder Assets to Figma Using Figmage

Would you like to use your Bynder assets in Figma? Save yourself time and instead of uploading your assets twice, add your Bynder assets directly to your Figma content using the Figmage integration.

With Figmage you can also upload your assets directly to Bynder. If your Figma images are already stored in Bynder and used on external websites you can simply push any changes you made in Figma back to your Bynder portal. The changes will be uploaded as a new asset version in Bynder and will automatically be updated on your external websites as well.
