1C. How to Upload Images into Second Life

Your image should be in JPG or PNG format, and the resolution should generally not exceed 512×512 pixels. It is possible to upload images as high as 1024×1024 pixels, but it can take longer for your viewer to bring these images into clear focus, so it’s best not to use anything over 512×512.

You will need to pay L$10 for each image you want to upload, so you will need to have a balance of at least L$10 in your account. Your balance appears at the top of your screen, in green text.

  1. Go to the menu at the top of your SL viewer, click on Build, go down to Upload… then click on Image.
  2. Find and select the image you want to download.
  3. You’ll see a preview of the image. Click the “Upload (L$10)” button to complete.
  4. The image with show up in your “Textures” folder.
