Add Images to a Canvas Page 


You can use the content selector to insert graphics and images into your course content. The Content Selector is located on any page where you can edit content, such as the Assignments or Syllabus pages.  When you upload an image using the Content Selector, Canvas automatically inserts the image into the content area (Rich Content editor) of the open page.

Note: if you just want to upload an image for future use, you should use the Add Files link on the Files Page instead of the Content Selector.

  1. In Canvas, open a page that contains the Content Selector.
  2. In the Rich Content editor, put your cursor where you want to insert the image.
