Framing your Images in MindManager

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

It is easy to add images to a MindManager map. You can take them from the library, insert an image from a file on your drive, drag or copy and paste them from other applications. Here are some ideas for framing the image.

Note: I started by adding the cartoon you see as a floating image and then copied it to the branches. This centres the image in the topic as opposed to taking the top, bottom, left or right postion.

The first option is to place the image in a simple rectangle topic shape, then margin is increased and fill colour added. Note: if you use a GIF image with a transparent background you will not get a frame.

The second option is to add a topic shape from those in the library and then adjust the margins to suit. You could also use a clip art image of a picture frame.
