A few weeks ago, Google released a new update for Google Forms. With this new feature, you can now insert images into survey questions or add images as multiple choices options.

Adding images to a question

  • For example, let’s say you have a question like, “Give me five adjectives you think of when looking at this picture.”
  • In the past, if you were using images in Forms, you would have used this button on the right-hand toolbar.

  • But now, if you want to insert images directly into questions or answers, you need to access your images from a different place. When you type out your question, click the image icon on the right side.

  • You can upload an image, take a snapshot, direct the form to a URL, browse your Albums or your Drive, or do an online search for an image.
  • Once you upload or select your image, it will be incorporated right into the question.

Adding images as multiple choice answers

  • For example, let’s say you have a question like, “Which of the following images do you think best represents our brand?” and you want your answers to all be images.
  • Click into the first answer space, and then click the image icon on the right-hand side. Upload or select your image.

  • Repeat for the other answers. By doing this, you’re inserting the various image options as the answers in your multiple choice question, so that each answer is a different image.

    Is there a way to allow people using the form to answer with an image? For example the question might be “Please upload your photo.”

    Yes – I have the same question – can people upload an image as an answer to a question?

    I would find it immensely useful if we could insert images via script. This would allow me to automatically create a form for rating images in a folder.
