Adding a raster dataset as a picture

If you have a picture, you can display it within the data view or place it on a layout as a graphic element. These pictures usually represent nongraphic images, such as a company logo or a picture of a house for a real estate map. Alternatively, you can create a hyperlink and associate it with a geographic feature on your map.

  1. In ArcMap, click the Insert menu and click Picture.
  2. Click the Look in drop-down arrow and navigate to the picture you want to add.
  3. Click the picture.
  4. Click Open.

    If you're in layout view, the picture is inserted on the layout. If you're in data view, the picture is inserted within the data frame.
