  • Select the whole Paragraph or a specific piece of text that you would want to turn into the hyperlink.
  • Go ahead to the General tab. With the styling tab in the Paragraph text option, click the Insert link icon.

Now, clicking this text downloads the file to the customer’s device.

3: Use Directly As Page ContentClick to copy

  • Choose the Image element.
  • Go to General tab > CONTENT > Image Source, then click Image Manager.

  • Click Add from URL.

  • Paste the URL of the Shopify file into this box. Click Select.

Then you can choose the image you just uploaded and show the image on the page editor.

You can do the same with the Background image element.
