Here is a brief rundown of how to embed an image in a post and the features of our forum editor.
To add an image to a post you will need to upload it first to an external image host such as dropbox, your facebook, flickr, tumbler, or your personal website. You can also use less permanent free hosts like picpaste, or tinypic. Unfortunately our forums don’t have a way of directly hosting the images.
JPG and PNG images work best. A good resolution would be 600×800 pixels at 72 dpi.
To embed an image in a post, first grab the full url from any of the hosts we mentioned above. The url will be something like “http://www.dropbox.com/myimage.jpg”. Next click the “IMG” button in the menu bar above the forum message field. That will bring up a pop up window where you can paste the url of your image.
This way the images will appear like in this post and we can all share in your collective awesomeness.
As always, if you have any questions you can post it in the forums or contact us here.July 12, 2015 at 4:22 PM #10853

When posting private images from Dropbox, keep in mind that whatever computer is logged into Dropbox(shared with YOUR folder of images), the images show up here(when embedded in the forums), Only THEY can see it, not everyone else that doesn’t have access to that link/photo, etc.. There are settings within Dropbox to change, which you can click on, the button SHARE after each image so that “anyone with the link can see it“. But thats it. Images cannot be embedded with private links, in my experience. FYI.August 28, 2015 at 9:21 AM #11643
Hi James, am adjusting that just now in all my assignment files.

If you’re having trouble embedding an image from a dropbox link, try adding “?raw=1” to the end of the public link.
Figured that out thanks to this post

Thanks for the helpful post! We are trying to move away from this forum as we have notice that people find it hard to upload stuff and also to get responses. This is why we have created a slack Channel you should see when you log in to your account we have posted links on how to send an invite to us. The app is great as you can download it to your computer, or open it directly from a browser, or take it to go on your phone or tablet. The uploading is a breeze and the link preview is also really cool. I suggest checking it out! Let us know if you have any other questions!
