I am creating a geometry quiz and need to embed images of geometric figures. I have three different outcomes that I just experienced and I bet there is an easy explanation out there but I couldn't find it by searching previous questions.
first: I took a screen shot of an image from an online homework tool I use. I saved it and uploaded it into Canvas using the side bar on the right. I did not see the image, just what appeared to be a link to the image. It was a png file and when I clicked on it, the file did open and the image did show. I was only able to upload when I checked the "decorative image" box.
second: I deleted and reloaded the image and the second time, the image was visible in the question.
third: I am uploading a second image and now I do not have to check the "decorative image" box. It did upload just fine.
Also, I now have two copies of the first image, appearing on the side bar. This is most likely a computer speed issue, right? Would my quiz images have been fine, had I just trusted that they would eventually appear? Is there a browser that is preferred when uploading images? And why did I not need to call the image a decorative image the second time?
In general, I would love to know the cleanest, simplest process for taking a screen shot and embedding it in a quiz question.
