If you have ever attempted to drag and drop images into Moodle, you may have been met with disappointment when your audience sees just a ‘question mark’ (i.e. error) in the place where you image should be.  I discovered a way around this:

The compact directions are:

  1.  Drag and drop the image
  2. Right click the image, select ‘Unlink’
  3. Right click again and select ‘Insert/edit image’
  4. In the Appearances tab, check the border–it may be very large.  If so, change the border to a reasonable, small number.

Illustrated instructions below:

Drag and drop your image into your page. Don’t worry about resizing it or anything like that yet.

Right click on the image and select “unlink image”.

For whatever reason, doing this tends to make a strangely large border above or below the image.  To bring that border back down to a reasonable size, again right click on the image and select “insert/edit image”

Step 2:  Under the insert/edit --> Appearance tab, reduce the size of the "margin-top" to whatever you want.  Usually 1-5 pixels is fine.

Step 2: Under the insert/edit –> Appearance tab, reduce the size of the “margin-top” to whatever you want. Usually 1-5 pixels is fine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s it!  Do a test run before you get too carried away, but it should work!
