I might've missed it but is there a way to place an image within a shape?

    Hello @jxslepton, my name is Aiza from MURAL Support. I'd be glad to help you with this.

    I do have an idea of what you mean and it is possible. First, you need to select the shape you want to use, then the image you want to place within the shape. I created the gif below so you may see what I mean.

    Are thinking about a different way to add an image in the shape? Hope this helps.

  • Thank you although I was looking to place a square image into circle.

    @jxslepton @AizaMarie - This question made me think of something I have also been wondering re: shapes of images. Most of the time images are square or rectangle and have sharp edges. Is there a way to edit an image to make it round? Thanks!

    @jxslepton Wow! That's gotta look cute. I tried your idea on my end. I can already imagine so many ways that you will do to make it prettier! Check my gif, was this what you wanted?

    @Linds Hi, I'm Aiza of MURAL Support. I love your idea! Although right now, we do not have a way to crop images into circles. Thank you for your idea on how we can continue improving MURAL. I can definitely see how that would be useful!

    We have recently launched our Community where you can discuss and exchange ideas with other MURAL users. The intention is to make enhancement and feature requests transparent to all users. It would be great if you could post your suggestion there so that it can be discussed and voted on by other MURAL users.

    You could even take a look at the suggestions other MURAL users have made and up-vote the ones you'd like to see! 😉

    Thank you but I was looking to crop a square image to fit into a shape, change the shape of a square image into a circle image.

    I would love this. Currently I use PowerPoint as a workaround to change the shape of an image and then copy & paste it to Mural, but it would be very helpful to be able to crop to shape in Mural :-)

    It's nice to know there are workarounds to make this happen - please keep sharing those!
