diagram.ly / draw.io

Need to quickly make a high quality network drawing and do not have your Visio with you? This free online ribbon based drawing software is a fast vector oriented drawing package. It has lots of panels with great and beautiful shapes for flowcharts, workflow, BPM, org charts, network diagrams, UML and electronic circuits. It even has Z-ordering (move shape in front or back), several line and fill styles. It can save your drawing as a XML file on your device for continued editing or finalize your image as PNG, JPG and SVG for use in documents or websites.

  • Select in the dialog with the checkbox the shape libraries and click the "Apply" button. You can also select other shape templates this way.
    draw.io Select Images

Using external images.

All images stored on a webserver can be used with Draw.IO. Import an image by selecting in the menu "Arrange" | "Insert" | "Insert Image". Next you can enter a webadres (url) pointing to the image or drag it in.
HINT: Remember when using intranet servers containing your images that the proces of downloading images ("File" | "Download as" | "Download as JPG/PNG/GIF/PDF" ) operates in the Cloud. That is why the image source must be reachable over the internet.
