Use Montana State OneDrive

Montana State University students, faculty and staff can use OneDrive for Business to store files, share files, and collaborate. Files in OneDrive are backed-up (and are an excellent way to have a back up plan for your work).

OneDrive is a part of the Microsoft 365 Office Suite.

An alternative would be to load the image file to your Box account and post that link to your Brightspace area.
