You can embed images in the New Rich Content Editor. Image files can be uploaded from your computer, selected from Unsplash, or added using a URL. You can also embed images from your course and user files.

Several features in Canvas support the New Rich Content Editor, including Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, and Quizzes.

Note: The New Rich Content Editor is currently a course opt-in feature. If the Rich Content Editor in your course does not match the images in this lesson, your course is using the classic Rich Content Editor.
