Graphics make a questionnaire more interesting and engaging, helping to improve response rates. They can be used to add your organisation’s branding by adding logos and background watermarks. Images can be used in place of text choices in questions, such as showing pictures of flags to select a country, as well as being used in the question.

In Snap Desktop, graphics can be placed in any question on the questionnaire. They can be included as the question text, the choice text, and the background of the question or page. Snap Desktop supports a number of images file types: bitmaps (.bmp), JPEG (.jpg), PNG (.png) and GIF (.gif).

Inserting an image

  1. Open the survey in the Questionnaire window. Make sure that you are in Design mode DesignModeIcon.png and that the toolbar topic is set to Font.
  2. Place the cursor at the point where you wish to insert the image.
  3. Click Insert and select Image from the menu. This opens the Insert Image dialog.
  4. In File, select the image file from the list or click Browse to select the file.

  1. Use the Zoom control to enlarge or reduce the image. This changes the size of the image shown in your questionnaire. For example, setting the zoom to 50% will mean that the image appears at half the height and half the width.
  2. In Colourize Gif, select the colour, if applicable for the type of image.
  3. In Alt, enter text that describes the image and will be shown if image cannot be displayed. Adding this text improves accessibility as it is also used by screen readers.
  4. Click OK. The image is shown in the questionnaire.
  5. Double click on the image to edit it in the Insert Image dialog.
