How do I create a folio?

You can begin creating with Xtensio as soon as you hit the site. You just need to click “Get Started” and you will be taken to the templates page to select one to try.

There are dozens of available templates to choose from, according to your industry or role. Or you can start with a blank slate to make your folio completely unique. Once you have your selected template you can click on its title, or “Use Template,” to be taken to the editor. This is where your creativity comes in. Insert modules, drag and drop them, add videos and images, charts, the possibilities are endless. 

Get a feel for the editor and see your content come to life:

  • Build your folio with interactive modules. Modules are where your content lives: text, graphs, images, videos, you name it. Move them, resize them, duplicate them, change the background. Learn more. 
  • Style your content with the toolbar. Format text, insert images, links, buttons, and tables  Learn more.
  • Split your folio into slides with sections. Each section on your folio is a full-screen slide or a page for print. Sections can be rearranged, duplicated, moved between folios. Learn more. 
  • Customize your layout with canvases. Add columns, easily stack or move modules or add a background Learn more.

If you love it (which we think you will), you can create an account to save your work, collaborate with your team, and share links to your folios. You can also download a free PNG draft with watermarks or purchase one-time exports to download the folio you created without signing up.

All of the download/sharing options are on the top right side of the editor. Keep in mind your session is anonymous, so if you close the browser without creating an account or exporting, your work may be lost.
