How to Add an Image or PowerPoint Slide to a Tutorial Captured with the iorad Extension


Lauren Taylor

It’s not uncommon for people to ask if there is a way to add a cover slide or insert an image with information into an iorad tutorial that is captured with the iorad extension. If you find yourself in this pickle, we’ve got you covered.

Take your static image and upload it to a web-hosted storage system (e.g Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive). The reason for uploading it to web-hosted storage is that our iorad extension/addon needs a URL to capture within the browser. This is why opening a file with “file://…” in the address bar of the browser won’t work.

However, for a PowerPoint slide, you’ll need to upload it to Google Drive to convert into a Google Slide Presentation. If you don’t have a Google account, then just save your PowerPoint slide as an individual image and follow the process above.

After getting the image/PPT uploaded to the cloud storage, open it, launch iorad capture, click the image(or right click the extension & click manual capture), and then stop the capture. You can add this image into an existing tutorial or start a new tutorial & then continue to capture the rest of your process with intertwining the image/slide into your iorad steps. Please take note that if you plan to make that specific tutorial a live walkthrough, it is not best practice to insert images/slides.

Here’s an example of how it would look with a slide/image in your tutorial.
