Default How to embed pictures in the post text?

I know how to attach pictures to a post, but sometimes I see pictures embedded in the post text. How do I do that?

Jan

How to do it.
  1. Start your reply
  2. Attach your image in the normal way (attach, upload, close attachment window)
  3. Now before posting, look down toward the bottom and find where you see your attachment listed. You'll notice it's a link.
  4. Right click on the link and "copy link" or "copy link location" whatever your browser says,
  5. Put that link in with the image button, or wrap it in the [img] [/img] tags.
  6. Post reply

You are very welcome!
NOTE: Be sure to use the Image button or the IMG tags. Just pasting the link into the post does not work.

That is the way it is generally preferred (so that an image doesn’t disappear) but if you have the URL of a picture out in publically accessible webspace anywhere you can link to that.

Click the image to open in full size.

I do this so that i can use the same picture across forums and my websites and so that even non-diyAudio members can see my pictures. If that webspace dissapears so does the image… this forum will lose a lot of picturs if my space goes away.

Have another go Jan. It looks like you somehow deleted the image.

Pano's instructions are spot on. Just attach the image as normal and then copy the URL from either the attachment screen (before you close it) or afterwards from the main screen. Then paste it with a wrap of the IMG tags.

You have used url and not IMG. You have time to do an edit and see if it works.
