Adding Images

You can add an image to any question in your survey. If required, you can also customise the way the image is displayed. Images can be imported from an external website, using the image URL. However, for the best results, we recommend that you upload your image into the File Library within SmartSurvey.

Adding an Image to a Question

To add an image:

  1. Copy the URL for the image you would like to embed. If your file is in the File Library, copy its URL there.
  2. Open the Survey Design page of the survey you want to edit.
  3. Click Add Question to add the image to a new question, or click Edit Question to add it to an existing question.
  4. Click the Enable Editor button under the Question Text field.
  5. Click the Image icon in the Editor which will open the Image Properties pop-up window.
  6. Paste the image URL into the URL field.
  7. Customise the appearance of your image using the fields that follow.
    • Use the Width and Height fields to specify the size of the image. The padlock icon ensure you retain the original aspect ratio, which prevents the image being misshapen.
    • Type Alternative Text to provide text that will be displayed if the image cannot be loaded.
    • Type the Border for the image, in pixels.
    • Type the Hspace and Vspace to add horizontal or vertical whitespace around the image, in pixels.
    • Select Alignment to position the image on the page.
  8. Click the green OK button to insert your image.

Adding an Image to an Answer

The process to add an image to an answer (for multiple choice questions) is very similar:

  1. In your survey, create your question and answers.
  2. After saving the question, open it to edit it, then click the small “edit” icon next to the answer text to which you want to add an image.
  3. Click “Enable Editor”
  4. Clicking the “Image” icon on the editor bar will allow you to enter the URL of an image you want to use. Alternatively, you can use an image from your file library by clicking “image gallery”.
    • (See Step 7 above for instructions on editing how the image appears.)
  5. Click “save changes” to finish editing this answer.
