How do you post a pic within a post?

I have seen pic's show up within posts. How do you do it? I have read the help and did what it says... but it still just shows the URL for the pic?

  • Yeah, pictures can be embedded within posts now. It took me a while to get it right but I figured it out. When you're getting an image from the Google results page, click on that particular image to enlarge it, and then click on "View Image" to get it on it's own. Then copy the URL in that window and paste it inside your post. Here's a sample directly from Google images (I just searched "flowers" for an example, lol):

    www.apogeephoto.com/.../Flowers_Photo-2.jpg

    Another way to do it is to upload your image to a site like Imgur or Photobucket, where you can get the direct link. Upload the photo to your account, and then once it's in your library just click on it. On the right side there should be a list of different linking options. Use either "Image Link" or "Direct Link" and copy one of those URLs. I like to use Imgur. Here's an example from Imgur using the "Image Link" option:

    http://imgur.com/BXvAezB

    BBcode and HTML embedding codes will not work here. And I find that sites like ImageShack and Tinypic don't link the image directly here either, just the URL. So avoid those sites. Images also do not show up in comments, and a max of three images will show up in your opinion (the rest will just show up as URLs).

    • Oops, it looks like my second example didn't work. My bad. Just use "Direct Link" if you use Imgur or Photobucket in that case. That always works for me.

      Also, images don't show up in question updates. It only works for questions and opinions.

    • Images don't show up in comments or updates. They only work in questions and opinions.

  • If you had posted up that link in your actually question instead of the update it would show up.

  • If you're googling a picture click view image than copy the url and paste. If you want to upload your own pic use imgur than select 'direct Link' after you upload it
