How to add images to your survey template.

Using Images on your survey template

Images are a great tool for enhancing survey templates.  They must be in a web-suitable format such as JPG, GIF, or PNG.  Upload new images or use existing images from the Kinetic Survey Attachment Library. Before adding or modifying an image, ask yourself if the image could be applied to one template, a few templates, or all templates? If you are going to be using the same image in many survey templates, it should be added the the Kinetic Survey Image Library in the SYSTEM DEFAULTS category.

Adding an Image

There are two options when adding an image to a survey template, from the image library or adding a specific image from a file.

Example of Add Image dialog:
