When you click the image format button you’ll bring up the Image Manager where you can add images to all your messages and questions. 

There are 2 ways you can add an image to markdown. You can use an external URL (Make sure this image is hosted for the duration of your study) or you can upload a locally stored image from your computer.

Via external URL:

To use an image URL - click on the 'By URL' tab and copy and paste a valid URL into the 'Image URL' field and wait for the image to display like below:

The alternate text can also be added in the ‘Image alternate text’ field if you would like.

This text will not show up in your message/question - only your image will. However, the alt text will display if your image is no longer available.

Once you’re happy with the image and alternate text, you can click on the 'Insert' button and insert the image tag into the markdown format.

Your image will proudly display accordingly when you click the 'Preview' button.

Uploading locally stored image on your computer:

To upload an image locally stored on your computer to use in your study’s message / question - select the ‘Upload’ tab and either drag and drop the image into the area or click the 'browse for a file' link to search for an image file stored on your computer to upload.

The ‘Images’ tab will now store all of the markdown images you have uploaded for that study.

You can then add these stored images to any further subsequent messages / questions by opening the image uploader for each question and clicking on the 'Select image' button.

You can also delete your uploaded images out of the ‘ Image’ tab if you wish by clicking on the ‘Delete image’ link.

However, doing so will delete this image out of your entire study. If you have used an image in previous messages / questions and then delete it, it will no longer display in those previous questions.

We provide a handy little warning message to remind you of this - just in case!

In the ‘Images’ tab you can edit the alternate text used with the image if you wish. Any subsequent uses of the image will have the new alternate text.
