Import images

Cacoo allows you to import images directly from your device, a URL, and third-party apps including Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, Adobe, and Visio. Images can be imported in PNG, GIF, JPEG, and SVG formats.

There are three ways to import an image:

  2. Drag and drop the image from your device directly into the diagram.
  3. Copy and paste the image into the diagram.

To import multiple images from your device, hold down the “Ctrl” or “Command ” key while selecting the images. You can choose to import all images into the same or individual sheets.

To import AWS architecture and database schema, select the import icon in the tool menu and “Show more” at the bottom of the panel.
