Adding and removing images

You may want to add your company logo, product photos, or other images to your plan. Your plan file can hold up to 100 images. 

Generally speaking, if you plan to download your plan as a document instead of sharing it online, then it's wise to keep your images centered, one per line, with text above and below wherever possible. Plans containing many images may experience some formatting issues. For help, read Troubleshooting image placement and size.

File requirements

  • Images selected for upload must be in PNG or JPG format. That is, the file you select for upload should end in a .png, .jpg, or .jpeg extension. Other image formats (such as .gif, .tiff, and .eps) are not currently supported.
  • Image files can be up to 5MB in size. Larger files will need to be resized with an image editing tool to fit under that size restriction.

To add an image to your plan:

  1. In the View & Edit page of the Plan section, click the EDIT button next to the text topic where you want the image to appear.
  2. In the text editor, place the cursor where you want to insert the image.
  3. Click the Add an image button in the toolbar: 
    Arrow Pointing to Add Image.png
  4. A dialog box will appear. Select the image from the location where it is stored on your computer.
  5. When the image is done uploading, click on it to adjust the size and alignment:

  6. Choose whether you want to align the image to the left, center, or right of any accompanying text:

  7. Choose how big you want the image to appear in your plan. The options are small, medium, or large:

    Note: If the original size of an image is too small, the medium and large size options may not be available to you. LivePlan will not enlarge small images if it means that they will be low quality (pixelated or blurry) in the printed plan. 
     
  8. Click I'm Done. You can adjust the alignment and size again as needed by clicking directly on the image and using the toolbar:

Changing image sizes or alignment

Even after you’ve inserted an image in LivePlan, you can easily go back and adjust its size or alignment.

  1. In the Plan section, select View & Edit:

  2.  Navigate to the text topic where the image was placed. Click Edit to open the text editor:

  3. Click on the image to select it. When selected, image sizing and alignment options will appear in the toolbar along the bottom of the LivePlan window:

  4. Select left, center, or right for the image alignment and small, medium, or large for the image size:

    Note: The size choices available (Small, Medium, or Large) will depend on the size of the image file you've originally uploaded. If you want finer control over image sizing, you may wish to export your finished plan to Word and adjust the images there.
  5. Click Close in the top-right of your LivePlan window to save the changes and return to the Plan view:

  2. Click on the trash can icon that appears in the toolbar:
    image-remove.png#asset:1971
  3. The image will be immediately removed.
