How to Add Images to Questions in Google Forms.


You don’t have to use text for your questions in Google Forms; you can use images instead. We’ll show you how to use this feature whether you add a single image as the question or multiple images as possible answers.

Add an Image Question in Google Forms

  • All question types, except File Upload, provide an image option for your question. So, for example, you could include an image in a Paragraph question and ask respondents to describe it, or you could include one in a Multiple Choice question and ask respondents to choose the correct depiction.
  • You can include an image before, during, or after creating the question. Click the Image icon to the right of the Question text box.
  • Use the tabs at the top of the window to find your image. You can upload one, take one with your camera, enter a URL, or select one from Google Photos, Drive, or a search for images.
  • When the image appears in your question, you can select one of several options by clicking the three dots on the top left of it.
  • You have the option of aligning the image, adding a caption, replacing it, or removing it.
  • After you’ve finished inserting and adjusting the image, you can finish the question by clicking the Preview icon in the top right corner to see it as your respondents will see it.

In Google Forms, you can add images as answer options.

  • In addition to basing a question on an image, you can use images as answer options for Multiple Choice and Checkbox questions in Google Forms.
  • On the top right of the question, choose one of these question types. Hover your mouse over the first possible answer and click the Image icon (mountains within a square) that appears.
  • Locate the image using your computer, camera, URL, Photos, Drive, or an image search, as previously described.
  • Repeat these steps for the remaining answer options to finish the question.
  • Then, click the Preview button to see how the question and answers will appear to your respondents.
  • Images add another way to ask a question or list possible answers when you create a form in Google Forms, such as a self-grading quiz.
