Make a Diagram with Gliffy Online
Gliffy is an easy-to-use diagramming tool with tons of templates, shapes, and icons — plus the ability to add your own. There are plenty of reasons you might want to include a custom graphic in your diagram. For example, you might want to:
- Make a proposal look more professional for a presentation
- Show how your business or product works within a network
- Add your logo to a diagram your customers will see
But before you can add a custom icon or logo to your diagram, you have to make a diagram. For this tutorial, you'll want to start your free trial of Gliffy Online. In just a few clicks, you'll be ready to drag and drop to build your own diagram.
How to Make a Diagram with Your Own Shapes
1. Gather the Files You'll Add to Gliffy
2. Drag and Drop Your File Onto the Canvas
We're a drag and drop diagramming tool, what did you expect? Just like adding files to Word docs or emails, you can drag and drop a single file into the Gliffy editor to load it in. Alternatively, you can go to File > Import in the menu bar to select an SVG, JPG, or PNG to load in.
If you don't want to add your image right away, you can also click Images in the list of shape libraries to the left, then select your image there. It will populate in like a pre-loaded Gliffy shape so that you can drag and drop it into your diagram when you're ready.
