1. Drag and drop images directly onto your canvas for instant creation

  2. Upload to your uploads gallery and tag images for later use

  3. Import from web:

  4. Dashboard image uploader: store your image assets in your image library dashboard and find them Uploads by library folder name

1. Drag and drop images directly onto your canvas

You can drag and drop images directly from your computer onto your canvas. It's best to select this option when you're ready to hit and run with a moodboard creation instantly and your images are saved on your computer.

It's also helpful when you know the images are moodboard specific. Ie: you won't use these images again in the future, as this option means the image will not save into your uploads gallery or image libraries, it will only save to the moodboard.

How to drag and drop directly onto your canvas

  • Select one at a time or multiple (up to 5) images on your computer

  • Drag and drop the selected image files on your canvas

Top tip:

  • If you struggle to see your computer finder to drag the images across, minimise your browser window so you can see your desktop.

  • Make sure to be in Selection mode, and not Grab mode

2. Upload from computer to your uploads gallery

If you want to populate your Uploads gallery for later use using tagging & keywords, using [UPLOAD FROM COMPUTER] within the Creator is the way to go.

How to upload from your computer

  • Open the Uploads tab

  • Click the [UPLOAD FROM COMPUTER] button

  • Select your images from your computer (you can upload up to 5 images at a time)

  • Add tags to find your images in future projects

  • Your uploaded images will save to Your Uploads gallery

Uploaded images can be searched for quickly (real-time filtering) and easily from within New SampleBoard's search box using keywords.

2. Import from web

Visit your favourite vendors and online shops, search Google Images or Pinterest, and save any image or product photo straight onto your moodboard canvas with our handy image address importer.

How to import an image from the web

Step 1. Upon browsing vendor or online shops, right-click the image with your mouse. The popup will look something like the screenshot below of the Crate & Barrel website.

Step 2: With the popup open, click one of the following depending on your browser:

  • Chrome - Click "Copy Image Address"

  • Safari - Click "Copy Image Address"

  • Firefox - Click "Copy Image Location"

  • Microsoft Edge - Click "Copy link"

Step 3. Paste the image address URL into the text box by placing your cursor in the text box and pressing either Ctrl+V (Windows) or ⌘ Command+V (Mac) and hit Import

Your imported image will auto-magically appear right on your canvas! Amazing.

Top Tip:

  • Double check the image address link ends with .png or .jpg when you paste it into the text box, otherwise it won't import.

  • If you face any issue, right-click and save the image to your computer, and drag and drop it onto your canvas from there.

** Some images on large vendor websites use carousals to showcase their products, these image addresses can be tricky. If this is the case, the workaround is to pin the image to Pinterest, and copy the image address URL from Pinterest, using the steps as above.

You can now insert the product info in the Image Editing Detail tab to populate your Purchase List.
