A Jamboard allows you to collaborate with other people in real-time to draw, add post-it notes, images, and more on a shared whiteboard. While using Jamboards couldn’t be more straightforward on the web app, it’s sometimes counterintuitive for the mobile versions. One issue people run into is being unable to resize images they have added to the Jamboard. Luckily we’re here to help. Here is how to resize images in a Jamboard for iOS and Android.

  • Tap and hold the top left corner to rotate your image
  • Tap the top right corner to Duplicate, Delete, or change the order of your image
  • Tap and hold the bottom left or right corner to resize your image

How to Resize Images in a Jamboard for Desktop

Resizing images in a Jamboard on a desktop is a trivial process compared to mobile. Simply click the image you want to manipulate and drag the bottom left or right corner to resize it. Click and hold in the center to move the image around. The top left corner will let you rotate the image, while the top right corner will give you a menu to delete, duplicate or change the front/back order of the image.

While the iOS and Android app versions of the Google Jamboard may not be the most intuitive right off hand, it doesn’t take very long to get the hang of it. One of the most important things to remember is to tap the blue pencil to enter edit mode anytime you need to edit anything. This also includes adding, moving, or deleting whiteboard pages.
