I need some help please
There is a version of that document that Eric linked to for students as well: How do I embed images from Canvas into the Rich Content Editor as a student?
My students find this task difficult and the instructions in either one of those documents can be very confusing. I have instructions for my students and we take class time to walk through the process in a lab setting so they can do it. Once they have the steps figured out, most are okay repeating it on their own.
I've heard from the students that the task is much easier from a mobile app when the picture is already in your device's pictures. If you're trying to embed from a mobile device, those documents won't help.
I'm not sure where the picture you're trying to embed is coming from, but there are really only two places that students use: from the web or a personal file.
For a picture that is already on the web and publicly available to anyone without logging in first, you can copy the link to the image by right clicking the mouse. When you want to insert the image into Canvas, you click the embed picture button (looks like a mountain with the sun), choose URL as the source and paste the link to the image in the box.
For a picture that you're creating or a file that is on your computer, things get much more challenging and this is where the real confusion starts. It's mentioned in the documentation, but it's easy to overlook. Assuming that you have a picture saved on your computer from somewhere, here are the steps.
The step that messes everyone up is that step 1 must be done before step 2. If you click on the embed image and you haven't previously uploaded the file, there's no easy way to embed an image right there. If you have typed stuff already, copy/paste it somewhere to save it, then go back to step 1. You'll have to reload the page with the editor on it before it recognizes the file has been uploaded and that means that you'll lose anything you've typed if you haven't already uploaded it.
Hi Zionne E and welcome to the Canvas Community! You should be able to embed an image in Canvas numerous places using the rich content editor. The document below describes this process.
How do I embed images from Canvas into the Rich Content Editor as an instructor?
Is this helpful in your situation?
How do I make the picture a jpg file ?
Hello Zionne E , you cannot make an image a .jpg file with Canvas itself.
As this document describes, What types of media files can I upload in Canvas as an instructor? , you can upload images to Canvas in the following formats:
As long as your image follows these guidelines it should work ok. If it is in one format and you particularly want a .jpg, then you would need to use another program to save the image as a .jpg before uploading it to Canvas. I use a program called Snagit which allows this, but there are many others.
I hope this helps!
