Wherever you can enter text, you can also add images and media. You can also add images to your main Moodle page by just drag-and-dropping them in.

    1. Click the Insert/Edit image button.
      add image
    2. Click Find or upload an image...
      • You can also add an image living on the web by entering it's URL in the "Image URL" box.
    3. In the File Picker, click Upload a File, then Choose File.  Browse for your image file, then click Upload this file.image properties
    4. You can also use the lefthand column to retrieve an image from an alternate location like Google Drive, Dropbox, or Private Files.
      add image from Drive or computer
    5. You'll see a preview of your image.  Make sure you add a description in the Image description box.  This will be used to provide alternative text for that image. (visit itaccessibility.hampshire.edu for more info)
    6. Re-size as needed. (images here are 450 pixels wide)
      • If your image is larger than 600 pixels wide, you probably want to re-size it.
      • Enter a smaller dimension into the first box, it will automatically adjust the next dimension. 500 or smaller is a safe bet.
      • If it's really huge, we recommend making it smaller on your computer and then re-uploading. Re-sizing in Moodle doesn't make it a smaller file size.
    7. Click "save image".
    8. You'll see the image within your text. 
      • Click the image to make changes. Click, hold and drag to relocate. Watch for the line of the cursor in the background to tell where it's going to go.
      • Expand the text editor controls for more options...
      • Select the image and play with the alignment buttons to have it alongside text.
      • To change the image options or sizing, select it and click the add/edit image button again.
    9. Save your changes!
