How do I insert course images into the Rich Content Editor using the Content Selector?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
You can use the Content Selector to insert and upload course images into the Rich Content Editor. The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, or Syllabus).
Note: If you do not need to upload images, you can embed images using the Rich Content Editor Embed Image functionality.
