I have a picture on my local computer that I want to show as part of a posting, but I cannot figure out how to embed it with my post.
I first tried using the “image” button, but it gives me a dialog asking me to type in the URL of the image. This seems to imply that I must have the picture on a server somewhere.
Then I tried using the “attachment” button. This gives me the dialog box I was expecting, and I can choose the jpg file from my local hard disk to upload. But the resulting post winds up with a clickable link rather than the picture itself.
I’m sure this is simple to do, because people on the forums do it all the time. I just can’t seem to find the right button.
That is the hard way to post a pic. After you attach it, you can click on the paper clip https://vexforum.com/images/editor/attach.gif again and it will show all the attachments as a popup. When you click on an item, it inserts an embedded attachment link like:
Which shows the actual photo within your post, but shows as a link when included as a quote in another post:
