Image reveal effect
With a Pro or Premium subscription, an image reveal effect can be added to quiz questions and true/false questions. This helps add a different dynamic to your game! After an image is added, you’ll see a set of “Image reveal” options to the right of the media box. Choose between original (no effect), 3x3, 5x5, or 8x8. The speed of this effect will vary based on the question’s time limit.

To crop an image, click the crop button next to the ⓘ info button. You can zoom in and drag the image before you save.
To remove an image, use the “Remove” button next to the crop button.
