    • Once the image is in your Media Manager, click on it to insert into your question.

    • The image should appear in-line at the spot where your cursor was positioned when you opened the Media Manager.

    • iFixit images show up in 4:3 format. Most modern cameras capture in 3:2 or 16:9, which will require a crop. If you change your capturing preferences when taking pictures to 4:3, you won't need to crop them in the Media Manager.

    • After inserting the image, scroll to the bottom of the page and click Preview Edit.

    • A preview will be automatically inserted below the fields for you to review.

    • If everything looks good, click Submit Edit. If not, scroll back up and adjust your question as necessary.

Conclusion

The image size for insertion must be 800 x 600 pixels otherwise there will be an error message in the Media Manager. It looks complicated, but is actually straightforward.

I can believe, but must, that iFixit has made uploading images this difficult rather than they way it used to be done! What a bunch of putzes.
