Content Library has more than two million high-resolution photos, illustrations, icons, and videos. You can access them right from Storyline 360, and they’re all royalty-free with no attribution required. In this article, you’ll learn how to add beautiful Content Library illustrations to your courses.

Adding Content Library Illustrations to Your Course

  1. Go to the Insert tab on the ribbon and click Illustrations in the Content Library group.

  2. Type a search term in the field at the top of the media browser and press Enter.


    Tip: The media browser will remember your last search term during the current session.
  3. Zoom in and out while you’re browsing for illustrations by holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and scrolling your mouse wheel.

    And if you want to look for a different type of media after opening the browser, use the drop-down list in the upper right corner to switch to another type: photos, illustrations, icons, or videos.
  4. Select the illustration you want to use and click Insert to add it your slide.

    Tip: You can select multiple illustrations at the same time using Ctrl+Click or Shift+Click, then insert them all at once.

Swapping Out Illustrations

You can swap out one illustration for another without losing existing formatting, animations, or triggers. We describe three ways to do so below.

Right-Click the Illustration

  1. Right-click any image in your course, scroll to Change Picture, and choose Content Library Photos.
  2. The Content Library browser remembers your last search during the current session, so you may need to use the drop-down list in the upper right corner to switch to Illustrations.
  3. Browse for a new illustration and click Insert.

Use the Format Tab on the Ribbon

  1. Select any image in your course, go to the Format tab on the ribbon, click the Change Picture drop-down arrow, and choose Content Library Photos.
  2. The Content Library browser remembers your last search during the current session, so you may need to use the drop-down list in the upper right corner to switch to Illustrations.
  3. Browse for a new illustration and click Insert.

Use Content Placeholders

If your course is built with content placeholders, you can delete an illustration you previously added to a placeholder and add another one in its place. Here’s how:

  1. Click the Insert Content Library Media icon in the placeholder.
  2. The Content Library browser remembers your last search during the current session, so you may need to use the drop-down list in the upper right corner to switch to Illustrations.
  3. Browse for a new illustration and click Insert.
