Introduction

Sometimes we forget to post images with our answers, or we want to add images later because we got more information. This will show how to add those images. The procedure is the same to add images to existing questions.

A newer version of this guide exists here.

Click on the orange "Images" tab in the bottom left corner This opens an approximately quarter screen size window with am upload symbol. This particular window may be empty, or it may have multiple images already present. This depends on if one has previously posted images. This is where the images are stored until they are going to be posted.

With the file showing in the bottom window, left click and hold on the image. Then drag the image into the question text window. This action will be noticeable since the background of the edit text window changes. Release the left mouse button once the cursor is in the question text window. The image will be placed at the last cursor position. Ensure that the cursor is, where the image is supposed to be placed, before dragging it into the question text box. Once the image is dragged to the question, it will show up as a number in the edit text box, but can be viewed in the preview. The image will now have been removed out of the repository as well.
