The file uploads system

On Pixel Chat there are various situations where you would want to upload your own files to use within certain overlays. For example, you may want to use custom sounds, images, or fonts in your alerts.

The uploads system we have makes this very easy!

If you would like to upload a file, start by heading to the Uploads tab on the navigation bar.

Uploading a file here is very easy, you can either click the Upload File button, then select the file you want to upload. Or you can simply drag the file you'd like to upload and drop it within the page!
