Image

The Image widget is used to show an image from uploaded assets or the URL link. The Image widget can display the different types of images such as JPEG, PNG, GIF, Animated GIF, WebP, Animated WebP, BMP, and WBMP.

  • Drag the Image widget from the Base Elements tab (in the Widget Panel) or add it directly from the widget tree.
  • Move to the Property Editor (on the right side of your screen) and scroll down to the Image section.
  • Find the Path property and enter the URL for the new image.
