Inserting Images


Adding images allows you to concisely express your ideas and create a more visually engaging Mind Map. You can add images from the built-in image gallery or add your own images.

To add an image from the existing image gallery:

 

 

 

  1. Either click on the branch you want to add an image to or leave unselected to add as a floating image or central idea
  2. Click on the side panel on the right-hand side
  3. Click the top “Image & Icons” tab
  4. Type in a keyword for an image you’re searching for and click the magnifying glass to search
  5. Click on the image to add it to the canvas.
  6. If you have not selected a branch it will ask you whether you want to insert the image as a central idea or as a floating image on the canvas

You can insert an image from your device by following these steps:

 

 

  1. Either click on the branch you want to add an image to or leave unselected to add as a floating image or central idea
  2. Click on the side panel on the right-hand side
  3. Click the top “Image & Icons” tab
  4. Click browse to search your computer for the image you want to add
  5. Click open to add it to the end of your selected branch
  6. If you have not selected a branch it will ask you whether you want to insert the image as a central idea or as a floating image on the canvas

 

Inserting images from a website

 

If you would like to insert images directly from a website, you can do this by dragging and dropping the image directly onto your canvas. Please make sure you have permission from the owner of the image before using any content sourced from the internet!

 

  1. Open your web browser and find the image you would like to insert onto your map
  2. Simply drag and drop the image onto your canvas to insert!

 

Moving an image

 

To move an image on your Mind Map:

 

  1. Select the image by left clicking on it.
  2. Simply drag and drop the image to the position you want.
  3. To rotate the image simply click and hold on the Rotate icon in the bottom right hand corner of the image and move your mouse.

Tip: If you have a Branch selected when inserting an image, you will notice the image will be 'connected' to the Branch via a faint blue line. This will ensure that when moving your Branches, the image will move with the Branch so you do not have to move them around separately.

 

 You can connect an image to a Branch simply by dragging and dropping the image on to the Branch itself. You will notice a small orange Branch icon appear when hovering over a Branch, releasing the mouse button will then connect the image to the Branch.
