How to Create Images with Zapier

With Creatomate's Zapier integration, you can quickly and easily set up an automated workflow that generates any kind of marketing images you need. The process is simple: just create a template that defines your image design, then use data from any source to generate hundreds of variants. Below is a brief overview of how to create images with Zapier and Creatomate.

Create an image template

The first step in automating marketing images is to create a template. There are many ready-made templates to choose from, both static and animated, which can be used for various use cases. However, you can also create your own image designs using the online editor.

Within your template, you can mark certain elements, such as text and images, as dynamic placeholders. You can then set up a Zap to automatically insert dynamic content into these placeholders.

Add Creatomate to your Zap

Every Zap starts with a trigger, followed by one or more actions. You can then use data from one of these apps, like titles and photos, to populate the dynamic elements of your template for automatic creation of unique visuals.

To create images using Zapier, add the Creatomate app with the Create Single Render event to your Zap. Then, select your template from step one and map any data you wish to use in your visuals.

Create marketing images automatically

It's as simple as that! With support for over 5000+ apps, you can use the tools that best suit your needs. For example, you can set up a Zap that automatically generates images when a new product is added to your Shopify store, when a new row is added to Google Sheets or Airtable, or when a new subscriber is added to Mailchimp, just to name a few. And as soon as the images have been generated, you can share them on social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, email them, and save them in Google Drive, among other options.
