Working with Text Overlay Transformations (DAT)

  • Updated

You can add text to your transformations in Dynamic Asset Transformation (DAT). As part of this, you can either use the out-of-the-box fonts or apply your company’s custom fonts. Using your custom font in transformations provides a consistent representation of your brand’s identity, enhances design cohesiveness, and streamlines the application of fonts in asset transformations. You can customize the font’s weight, size, color, positioning, and padding.

How to upload custom fonts

Before you can apply your custom fonts in DAT, follow the steps here to upload your custom fonts in your portal settings.
