Adding images to a slide

You can add an image to a story slide. You can use one of the default images, or an image of your own.

Do the following:

  1. In storytelling view, click Image.

    The Media library opens.

  2. The following formats are supported: .png, .jpg, .jpeg, and .gif.

    For Qlik Sense: You can upload images to the In app folder in the media library. You need to use the Qlik Management Console to upload images to the default folder.

    For Qlik Sense Desktop: You can place images in the following folder on your computer: C:\Users\<user>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Content\Default. Images will be available in the default folder in the media library. When moving an app between installations, the images that you use in the app are saved in the qvf file together with the app. When you open the app in a new location, the images will be in the In app folder in the media library for the app.

  3. Click on a folder in the media library, for example In app or Default.
  4. Select the image that you want to add to the slide.

    A preview of the image is shown.

  5. Click Insert.

    Information noteAlternatively, right-click the image file you want to add and select Insert.

The image is added and snaps to the grid. You can use the keyboard arrows to move it freely.

Information noteIf the image is larger than the width or height of a slide, it will be re-sized to fit on the slide.
