In ArcGIS Pro, features are symbolized using the default Esri symbol sets. If custom symbology is required, it is possible to import an image as a picture marker symbol under the Style option and use the image as a style in the map.
The following steps describe how to import an image to ArcGIS Pro as a style:
- In ArcGIS Pro, open a new blank project.
- Creating a personal style for custom symbols is recommended. To create a new style, refer to ArcGIS Pro Help: Create a new style in the project.
- In Catalog, click the Styles drop-down list and select the newly created style. Right-click the style and select Manage.
- Right-click the empty space and select New.
- By default, the Point symbol appears. Click Point symbol to edit.
- In the Point symbol pane, set the desired Name and Key. Click Apply.
- Click Properties.
- Click the Layers icon and select Picture marker from the drop-down list.
- Under the Appearance drop-down list, click File to select the image. If necessary, adjust the Position, Rotation, and Offset Distance. Click Apply.
To apply the new symbol to a layer, click the layer symbology in the Contents pane to open the Symbology pane. The picture marker symbol created using the above steps is available under the newly created style section.
