Insert a Graphic

Introduction

You can easily display graphics in a question field, answer choice field, Header/Footer, or email message. Qualtrics supports JPG (or JPEG), PNG, and GIF images that are 16MB or smaller.

Qtip: For information on uploading file sizes larger than 16 MB, please contact your Qualtrics Account Executive.

Before you upload a graphic into your survey, make sure you have permission to use the image.

Qtip: For more on uploading, deleting, editing, and copying graphics, see our Graphics Library page.

For the best user experience, we recommend using PNG files, keeping images below 1MB, and having a width of 770px or narrower. However, if you insert a graphic that is larger than 770px wide your survey theme should expand to accommodate the picture.

If you plan to make significant changes to the width/height of your image, use an image editing program to edit the image before upload.

Qtip: Photoshop, Pixelmator, Gimp (free), and Paint.Net (free) are a few examples of image editing programs.
