How to Create Images in Bulk?

Creatomate makes it easy and efficient to create images in bulk. Start by designing a template for your images. Then, provide the content you want to include, such as titles, product photos, or AI-generated text and visuals. With just the push of a button, your images will be created all at once.

Create an image template

The first step in bulk image generation is creating a reusable template, which acts as the blueprint for all your images. Within this template, you can specify which elements you want to change for each image, such as text, and photos.

There are ready-made templates available, but you might prefer creating your own designs. You can easily do this using the online template editor, which lets you automate images for almost any social media and marketing need.

Set up a spreadsheet

Once you have a template in place, the next step is to prepare a spreadsheet. Here, you can upload pictures, import a CSV file, or insert text to use in your images.

Fill out the spreadsheet with as many rows as you need - each row will become an image. It also gives you the ability to preview your images before rendering them.

Generate images in bulk

Now all you have to do is select some rows or the entire feed, and automation will handle the rest. Depending on how many images you want to generate, it may take a few minutes to complete. Once they are ready, download the images to your device and use them however you want.

That is, in a nutshell, how you create images in bulk. Here is a step-by-step tutorial that explains the process in more detail.
