  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.

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.
