Picture formatting options in Articulate Quizmaker 360

The following picture options are available for images, screenshots, and characters. They're also available for shapes, captions, and text boxes that are filled with pictures or textures.


Use the Preset selector to alter the color of a picture. The color choices come from your theme colors.

Use the Brightness, Contrast, and Transparency sliders to adjust these attributes, or enter a specific value in the corresponding fields. (Transparency is only available for pictures, screenshots, and characters.)


Blend options give you even more control over the color qualities of an image. To apply a color blend, choose the color you want to use, then choose a blend mode.

  • Color: Choose a theme color or standard color. To use a custom color, click More Colors or Eyedropper.
  • Mode: Choose how the color affects your image.

You may need to experiment with different combinations of colors and modes until you find the look you want. For example, here's an image in its untouched form and with a standard green color applied in various color modes.
