Palleon - Javascript Image Editor

Please note that, if you open index.html file directly on your browser, it may not work properly. Most browsers restricts the kinds of files that pages can load (and methods of loading) when you open them from a file:// URL. You should upload the folder to your hosting or create local server environment on your computer using a third party app. For example; MAMP.



This folder contains images.


This folder contains all CSS files. There are two ready themes (light and dark) you can use.


This folder contains all elements, frames, icons and templates hierarchically.


This folder contains all javascript files. All javascript plugins (except FabricJS) we've used are in js/plugins.min.js file.


This folder contains 2 json file which are required for loading "Google Fonts" and "Material Icons".

<img id="palleon-canvas-img" src="" data-filename="" />

and add your file url and name like the following;

<img id="palleon-canvas-img" src="assets/placeholder-big.jpg" data-filename="placeholder" />

How to add my own templates?

1) Create something with the image editor and download as template (You can also upload this JSON file directly to the editor from New->Upload Template).

2) Put the JSON file into Files->Templates->Json folder.

3) Create a thumbnail image and put the image into Files->Templates->img folder.

4) Open index.html file and add your template into #palleon-templates-grid div like the following example;

<div id="palleon-templates-grid" class="palleon-grid template-grid template-selection paginated" data-perpage="21">
<div class="grid-item" data-keyword="MY TEMPLATE" data-category="blog-banners">
<div class="template-favorite">
<button type="button" class="palleon-btn-simple star" data-elementid="ELEMENT_ID"><span class="material-icons">star_border</span></button>
<div class="palleon-masonry-item-inner palleon-select-template" data-json="YOUR_JSON_URL">
<div class="palleon-img-wrap">
<div class="palleon-img-loader"></div>
<img class="lazy" data-src="YOUR_THUMBNAIL_URL" title="MY TEMPLATE" />
<div class="palleon-masonry-item-desc">MY TEMPLATE</div>

The following data attributes are important;

data-perpage: The number of templates on the page. Required for pagination plugin.

data-keyword: The keyword which is used on template search.

data-category: The category which is associated with the template.

data-json: The url of the JSON (template) file.
