You can then choose which image to have in the middle of your iMindMap. This is called a Central Idea. The Central Idea is the starting point of your iMindMap and represents the topic you are going to explore, such as the name of your story, the project you’re doing or the subject you would like to revise.

Choosing an Image from the iMindMap Gallery
