At the moment, you can only add pictures and sounds to flashcards using our website, not our mobile app. We hope to add mobile image uploading very soon! Make sure you’ve gone out to the App Store, and make sure you have the latest version of the mobile app. You don’t want to miss the exciting updates!
To add images to your flashcards using the Brainscape website, you can click the “+” next to the sounds or images icon on the bottom of the flashcard. This feature is currently available to those with Pro access.
Then you will be given a prompt to upload an image file from your computer. We currently accept .png, .gif, and .jpg files. (This includes animated gifs!)
Wherever possible, you should upload the largest possible version of your image file (2160 pixels in at least one of the two dimensions. Also square images work better than rectangles), and Brainscape's software will scale it down to each device where you may be studying it. Your image will always appear below the text on your flashcard, scaled to the maximum width of the card (and whatever height that would entail).
