How to Import a PNG File to ArcMap


ArcMap is a geographic information system software program included with ArcGIS, a suite of programs that allows cartographers and mapping experts to create maps for a wide variety of applications. ArcMap can handle and display external files inside of it, such as image files in the JPG and PNG formats.

  • Open ArcMap and then open the mapping file that you want to import the JPG or PNG file into.

  • Click "ArcToolBox" in the file menu.

  • Click "Import" and then select the "Image" option.

  • Select the image, choose the import dimensions you want to use and then click "Import."

Tips & Warnings

  • Ensure that you don't move or delete the PNG file, as ArcMap still links to its location even after you import it.
