What is it?

Add your own images to The Media Tool in Logos 7.5, to use whatever background you like in quotes.

This feature requires Logos Now membership or Logos Cloud subscription.

How does it work?

To upload images:

  1. Open Tools>Media.

  2. Click the "Upload Media" button.

  3. Select your image(s) from the file browser.

  4. Your image will be stored privately online as "user media."

  5. You may add tags to each image to more easily locate it later.

Supported formats: jpg, jpeg, png, bmp, gif, tiff

File size limit: 10 MB after conversion to .png. (Uploaded files are automatically converted to .png for online storage. If your image is in another format, in some cases the original file will need to be somewhat less than 10 MB.)

To find your images later:

In the Media Tool, change the File Vault selector menu from "Logos Media" to "User Media."

Known issues

  • Transparent backgrounds are rendered as black when text is added.

Same here. Two successful uploads yesterday, and then this error message today.

Sorry about this, folks. The error is related to a licensing issue; it's supposed be available to Logos Now / Logos Cloud subscribers, but there are some back-end connections we need to make. 

We'll have it fixed later this morning.

User image upload in the Media Tool is now live for Logos Now (and Logos Cloud) members in Logos 7.5.

Will this become available to Logos 7 users at some point or will it be restricted to Logos Now users until version 8 comes out? I have been waiting for this since purchasing Logos 7.

Hi, Marc, thanks for your question.

Plans often change, so we avoid stating definitively what "will happen" in the future. For example, the Bible Browser tool started as a Now/Cloud-exclusive feature, but it is now also available in the Extended Feature Set

For now, user media upload is limited to Now members or subscribers to Logos Cloud Essentials (or higher).

Does item 5 in the original post answer your question or are you looking for something different?

Can uploaded images be used with passage references & translation? I don't see that option. In other words, it will include the passage, but not the reference nor the translation used.

This is awesome! I'm having some problems with it maybe you could help me clear them up

I uploaded the sermon series slides into the media via the instructions you gave. I found the slide in the toggle for "user media"

When I update the sermon with the slide and hit "apply this style to all slides" it resets all slides to plain black.

When I update a single slide it resets the text to be black in color and super small (unreadable if I were to use it on Sunday morning). 

I can give some screenshots if needed, I'd really like to help fixing it as this is an awesome upgrade.

As Alabama suggests let's continue this in the thread you started earlier at https://community.logos.com/forums/t/141854.aspx 

I think I'm seeing a similar problem but it would be good to tie it down more closely there

I just want to make sure I understand, I need to pay for a service to use my own images in sermon prep?

Shaun, for now this is a subscription feature. We may open it up to non-subscribers later (e.g., with the launch of Logos 8), but we've not decided for sure yet. We have bandwidth and storage costs for this feature, and we've not yet built support for having storage limits. When we do, we'll likely have a free storage level that wouldn't require an ongoing subscription. I'm sorry for the inconvenience in the mean time.

Just got the Logos software today; planning on using the sermon editor for preaching and power point in a couple days. I'm excited about the sermon editor feature but was struggling with getting my own images into it. So I came here and find out that to get my images into my sermon is a privilege exclusive for those who pay for a subscription... after having just purchased $600 of software. 

Here's an idea: don't force people to store every piece of media on your servers. It's rather obnoxious to assume I want everything I do to be public. If you want, make the ability to store it in the cloud a paid subscription feature, but by default only save it locally. After all, if I want to use the cloud it makes sense to pay for the storage costs, and if I need to have access to it in multiple locations, I would be more willing to pay for it. But right now, I don't believe the whole world needs my image for my opening icebreaker. Let me store the thing locally to use in the software I already own.
