Canvas - How do I embed an image in a discussion reply as a student?


You can embed an image file directly into discussion replies using the image icon. Images can be embedded from the web, your Canvas user files, or Flickr. If a change is made to the source of your image after you have embedded it in the discussion reply, the image added to your discussion will not be changed.

Note: Before you can embed an image from Canvas, the image must first be uploaded to your user files.
