System Formats

Notice that with many assets, Faithlife Files automatically creates smaller resolution versions. Upload your best resolution asset and every size you may need will be made available. You can even provide links to the smaller versions by clicking the link icon connected to each version.

Clicking Update will update the original asset. Once the asset is updated, new smaller versions will be auto-generated.

Add New lets you manually add another format for your asset. For more help on adding new file formats, click here.
