How do I add images to my Assignment submission?
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 add images to your assignment, either as part of a text entry assignment, or as your entire submission.
Any attachments added as part of a graded assignment submission are uploaded into your user files but are not counted against your user quota. However, once the file has been uploaded as a submission, you cannot delete the file.
Note: Your instructor will decide what type of submissions are allowed. One or both of these options may not be available.
Add Image in Text Entry
To embed an image as part of a text entry assignment, click the Text Entry tab.
Choose Image Source
To embed a photo from the internet, click the URL tab . To embed a photo that is already uploaded in your personal files in Canvas, click the Canvas tab . To embed an image from Flickr, click the Flickr tab .
For step-by-step help with each type of image, please view the embedding images in the Rich Content Editor lesson.
Add Image in File Upload
If you can add an image as your entire submission, click the Choose File button in the File Upload tab.
Note: Your instructor may restrict the types of file uploads that are allowed.
