Hotspots bring interactive, contextual pop-ups that contain rich content (text, images, buttons, links, icons, and more) to your images.

Adding Hotspots

To add a hotspot, select any uploaded image and click the ‘Add hotspot’ button – either in the Upper Contextual Toolbar, in the bottom right corner of the image, or in the right-click menu.

Once the hotspot dot appears on the image, it can be placed (or moved) anywhere in the image. There’s no limit to the amount of hotspots you can add to an image (but try to keep it to a reasonable number).
When you click the ‘Add hotspot’ button, a pop-up window opens. In the pop-up you can insert either (or both) text and any element from the right panel: a picture, button, divider, icon, grid, etc.

Editing Hotspots

You can set the format for your hotspots: choose the most preferable shape for the dots, the way the pop-up appears in a published post and also make the dots animated. By selecting several elements, you can apply changes to all selected dots at once.
