If you are a student wanting to embed an image into a discussion reply it's a two step process.  First, upload the image to your personal Files area in Canvas.  

  • In the upper left corner of Canvas click Account, and then Files
  • Click on the My Files folder, and then the upload button on the right side to select an upload the image.

Now that the image is on Canvas in your account you can embed it in the discussion.

  • Go to the discussion and click Reply.  
  • Click the Embed icon on the menu bar . 290327_pastedImage_1.png
  • Click on the Canvas Tab, My Files folder, and then click on the image to embed.
  • Once it has been added to your post you can resize it if needed by clicking on it and then dragging one of the corners inwards.

 

I hope that helps,

Rick
