How to add an image to a quiz questionThe easiest way to add an image to a question is to search the Internet for the image (e.g., using Bing Images), right-click the image, copy the URL, and then paste it into the URL box of the Image Properties dialog.
The remaining fields in the dialog allow you to:
- Scale the image up or down (by typing a Width or Height value in pixels).
- Add a border around the image (by typing a border thickness in pixels).
- Distance the image from the surrounding text (by typing the horizontal (HSpace) or vertical (VSpace) distance in pixels).
- Float the image on the left or right side of the text (by selecting an Alignment item).
