Image asset.png Insert graphical assets to appear on screen. To upload a new image asset to the project, click the upload files button at the top right of the screen to browse for your asset. Once the file has been uploaded, either enter its filename in the Normal field in the Image Inspector or click the Browse for image files button to the right of that field. Only Normal has to be specified to show an image.

Hot spots can be added to the image. These will enable the learner to tap or click on part of the image to see more information displayed in a sub screen. Create hot spots by clicking the Hot spots button to launch the Hotspots Inspector.

Add and edit sub screens using the Sub screens button.

Active and Visited images can be used to mask hot spots so that their appearance changes depending on whether the hot spot is currently selected or has already been tapped or clicked.
