The forum includes a handy 'Insert Image' button to embed image content from a URL.
Selecting the 'insert image' icon displays a prompt asking for the URL web location of the image.
So what if your image is not online?
A image post website like postimages.org can be used to display your images. Just make sure not to post anything sensitive such as personal information, pictures with passwords, or anything that you don't want the world seeing.
To post an image to postimages.org first take a screen shot, or use the Snipping Tool (press the Windows key then type Snipping Tool), to save a local copy of the picture you would like to upload. Then from postimages.org select 'Choose Images' and upload your saved image.
Embed the image using the 'Direct Link' text for the URL content when using the 'Insert Image' button.
I'm not clear on this... does it require the line... MMM-Embed-Image-1 as part of the name? I did this.. but I just posted the link
Let me try here... I'm using the link above...
Well, I missed something...
Oh, all I did was drag and drop.... hmmm... that seems to work... Just drag and drop... when I use the link to the image... it doesn't work from the link... but since I have image on desktop too... no problem..
Hmmm... was having a problem... used that sites code... as they indicate is location of image... but, it actually takes me to their web page... grabbed that image's location from the page... NOT following their orders... let me try that.
Aha! Little buggers... site I'm using is a bit ambiguous on their terminology. So... I'll have to, in future, go to the link they provide... right click on image and grab the link there. I would point this out to them.. but perhaps they did it to avoid people linking to image directly, unless they know how... and that way it takes the person viewing to their *site* to see the image... instead of just using their storage. As we see... they don't drive people to their site when I just use it to display the image like above. And naturally... since the URL is a page URL it didn't work to use that link. Seems obvious my problem once it's obvious... lol
Perhaps it's a sign of my aging brain... that I didn't immediately recognize that the link: https:/ibb.co/BfDT3jR is NOT an image... duh! no .jpg ending. I'm getting slack. Perhaps the wife's occasional jabs at demensia or alzheimers has some merit. Or, perhaps I'm just too trusting in what people tell me something is supposed to be. "Use this link for the image"... well now... uh... NO! lol
