- Gold and Platinum users can now add images to their Question Banks.
- Silver users use Question Banks containing images that are in the Community, but are unable to create their own Question Banks containing images.
In order to create a Question Bank containing images, you must first create it as a Private Question Bank. Once you have finished adding images, you will then be able to share it in the Community, or with School or MAT colleagues. For more information on the different categories of Question Bank, click here.
To create an new Question Bank containing images:
Follow the standard process to upload a Question Bank, making sure to select PRIVATE as the Type.
Once you have successfully uploaded the new Question Bank, or if you want to add images to a Private Question Bank that you previously created, in the Dashboard select the three dot “meatballs” menu and click ‘EDIT QUESTIONS’.
This will open the Question Bank editor.
Select the question to which you want to add an image, and click on the image icon:
Click on ‘Browse’ and locate on your computer the image you want to add to the question. Acceptable file types are .png, .jpg and .jpeg (but cannot have a resolution higher than 2048px x 2048px).
You can adjust/crop the picture size and/or centre it by using the zoom slider and crop area, or by manually setting the width and height in pixels (you may need to scroll down to view this):
When you are happy with the image, click SAVE.
Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure you have the appropriate permissions, rights or licences to use the image in the way you intend to use it and Carousel accepts no responsibility for any breach of copyright or intellectual property rights that may result in users adding images to Question Banks.
You can also add credits and / or the source URL to the picture (which may be a licensing requirement of some otherwise free images):
When an image has been added to a question, the image icon will change to blue:
To change the image, or edit it further, simply click on the image icon again. To delete an image, click on the blue image icon, and then select DELETE.
When you are finished, simply click 'BACK TO DASHBOARD'. Images are now in your Question Bank, and will also appear in any quizzes you have set using these questions.
To share your Question Bank containing images in the Community, or (Platinum only) give it School or MAT status, click on the three dot "meatballs" menu in the Dashboard, and select 'EDIT DETAILS', and change the Question Bank's TYPE to Global, School or MAT as appropriate (see here for more on this.)
