Insert images from your computer, the cloud, or the Web into a mural.

Three methods for adding images to murals
Insert GIFs into the mural

Tell visual stories with images.

Create murals and activities that tell a story with images and GIFs in murals. For example, images become powerful ways to convey stories in a storyboard. Plus, you can get your team laughing and connected with an energizer, like GIF tournament. You and your collaborators can add images in three ways: Drag and drop images, import files, or image search directly in the mural.

Drag and drop images into the mural

  1. Select an image from your internet search results, a folder, or your desktop
  2. Drag and drop the image directly into the mural.

Search and add images and GIFs from the Web

MURAL has an in-app image search to find and add files. Here’s how to add them from within the mural:

  1. On the left toolbar, select the image icon. This opens the image search.
  2. In the search bar, type in a keyword or phrase. To search for a GIF, type in the phrase “GIF” at the end of your search.
  3. Search through the results for an image you want. Hover over any image to see a larger preview. Click and drag the image onto the mural.

Import from your computer or cloud apps

  1. Right-click on a blank space in your mural to bring up the options menu.
  2. Select import files from the menu. This opens the options to import from your computer, Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive.
  3. If you’re importing from a cloud-based service, you will need to sign in to access your images.
  4. Locate and select the image you want to import. The image will appear on the mural in the selected location.

Hi, Gino with MURAL here ready to talk to you about how to add images and GIFs to power up your murals. First thing you're going to do is head to the left toolbar and click on the icon of a picture. What will happen is a toolbar will slide out with a search bar and all you have to do is search for the image you would like to add to your mural. You might be asking why we're adding images to our murals. And what I would say to that is because it's awesome how maybe you aren't somewhat of a static image person but really want to have a GIF playing on your reel because gifts are also awesome. All you have to do is simply add " G, I, F," to the end of your image search and I would love that as well. Now, that has been how you add GIFs to your murals. That’s all I will say to you. That's all for now.
