    Pictures in description


    Would it be possible to attach pictures in the description? Not just a link to a picture, but a thumbnail or something.

    I believe it is already possible to do that - I saw another user doing it in their description somewhere. As HTML tags are used on this site, I presume it would be something to do with 'img' text. I'll have a test here with some of the tags and edit my post if I find one that works:

    So the above picture (which I hope you can see!) was by simply uploading an image to imgur, copying the HTML link, and posting it here in this comment. I presume it will also work for sound descriptions? The picture should be small though (the above is 200x300) otherwise it will escape the post and wreak havoc all over the internet, like so:

    Did you resize the picture or through html? Tried the latter, but it didn't work.

    I resized it through software; e.g. the free software "paint.net", or I'm sure photoshop has a similar function. And then uploaded the resized image.

    It looks like there's also some image resizers scattered around the vast internet, which you might want to check out (at your own caution though!)

    I converted the picture to 300x225 and I try to use the line: img src="http://i.imgur.com/xxxx.jpg" still the picture fills the whole page when I add it. Even tried with adding style="width:300px;height:225px; same result. Any tips?

    Hmm, that's odd. I just tested this out and it seemed to work.

    Right click the image file and double check its resolution. What are you using to resize the image? And are you definitely sure its the "HTML" code you are copying from Imgur, and not any of the others? Maybe paste the code in a comment here.

    The image I uploaded is a .jpeg as well, so perhaps try converting the image to a .jpeg if it isn't already?

    I'm not too sure what else could possibly fix it - sort of grasping at straws. wink
