Importing an image

Import a .jpg or .png image into your canvas. Draw on, rotate, resize, pin and duplicate your image.

Add images to your canvas to illustrate ideas, add context and capture information. The software supports .jpeg, .jpg and .png files.

Add images from:

  • The Span web client using a certified mobile browser
  • The Span web client using a certified computer browser
  • Span Workspace wall client


You can also add images by copying and pasting them onto your canvas.


Adding an image

On the web

  1. Click Import from the toolbar
  2. Select the image you wish to upload. The image will automatically be added to your tray. The items in your tray are visible only to you. You can also drag and drop the image from the folder directly onto the canvas.
  1. Add ink to your image in the editor if you wish
  2. Click the done checkmark when finished

  1. Drag and drop your image onto the canvas to make it visible to all of the canvas participants 

Alternatively, access the dwell menu by right-clicking the canvas in the web client. This action will skip adding the sketch to your tray, and instead place it directly on the canvas.


On the wall

While working on the wall, add images to the canvas by dragging and dropping image files, by copying and pasting them, or by capturing them as a screenshot.

Drag and drop

  1. Tap the applications icon   on the far right of the canvas menu bar to get access to your files and applications
  2. Open your files and drag and drop the image you wish to add onto your canvas


Copying and pasting

  1. Tap the applications icon on the far right of the canvas menu bar to get access to your files and applications
  2. Copy an image from your files, from your Internet browser or from any other application that allows copying and pasting

  • Select Edit from the three-dot menu

You can also access the three-dot menu by right-clicking the image on the web, or pressing and holding in the wall software.

From your browser: If the image is in your tray, duplicate will create a duplicate in your tray. If the image is on the canvas, it will create a duplicate directly on the canvas.

  • Click the number between the increase and decrease icons and type in a scale for the image (minimum 100, maximum 400)
  • Drag the resize handle to adjust the image's size




Pin the image to the canvas

  1. Click the pin icon    from the quick tools menu, or select Pin from the three-dot menu to attach the image to the canvas background and prevent it from being moved
