I would like to add an image in a zone, on the map, to show that an event ocurred. I don't mind if it is in an Annotation Text or any other functionality.

Is it possible somehow in QGIS?

It requires an extra step in separate software but if you wanted to use annotations what you could do is:

  1. In Inkscape you could import your image and then save the image as an .svg file

  2. In QGIS add an SVG annotation (selected from the dropdown next to the add text annotation) and select your svg. The image will appear and you can resize is like any other annotation.
