Edit and recolor animated images

You can recolor animated icons and illustrations downloaded from our website in two ways.

First — serious but rewarding, uses source files.

Downloading an animation in AEP format gives you the source file, which lets you edit it properly and do anything you want, from recoloring layers and modifying speed to deleting objects and editing the animations themselves.

The catch is that you'll need to use Adobe After Effects since AEP is a native format for this app. It has a 7-day trial period, though.

Second — quick and easy, works most of the time.
1) Download the animation in JSON format
2) Go to the Lottie editor. It may ask you to register an account.

3) After uploading the file, you'll see a list of layers the image consists of and their colors.

4) In the editor, you can modify the animation's colors and general properties, such as dimensions, framerate, and duration.

Note: Lottie editor is a 3rd party tool, so we can't guarantee that our animations will be compatible with it 100% of the time. Please expect that at least some layers might be unavailable for recoloring.
