The Image import works with PDF, .JPG, or .PNG files. The images can be black and white or color. PDFs must be a single page.
There are 2 ways to open the layer upload applet:
Add layer → Create Your own → select layer type
Main menu (☰) → Layers → select layer type
Images can be added to the map as layers using the image layer creator. This allows you to import images, fit them to a relevant area on the map and add them as a context layer to one or more of your projects.
To import the image click
Create Layer From Image.
The import tool will appear in the right bar.
Upload the file and adjust it to fit the correct area on the map. Uploading a PDF file will launch a utility to allow you to choose the area of the PDF you want to import and the resolution of the import.
When uploading a PDF, the system will convert it to an image for faster processing later on.
You can adjust a few settings prior to finalization.
