I was just reading a question about color issues with Windows Image Viewer and felt like the accepted solution could profit from some visual guidance.

Should I edit the accepted answer or add a new answer? I'd like to know how to proceed with this case it particular, but also what the general guideline is.


Since it is the same answer, just adding an image, you should add it as an edit.

If you had more information to add, I would make a new answer, but since it's just a little visual aid, I feel this would be best placed as just an edit. (Remember to upload the image using our image uploader)

  • To be honest, I think the answer itself could use some touching up as well (Bibhas explains the solution a lot better). Where is the boundary? – Der Hochstapler Feb 4 '12 at 1:16

    @OliverSalzburg Feel free to post your own answer then - could earn yourself some rep there. If it was identical, then I would say no, but if you have much more to add, then do it. – Simon Sheehan Feb 4 '12 at 1:38

    I agree. I think the limit is whether or not the original answer got the point across; if there was little effort in explaining what the answer is, then there's no reason for that answer to benefit from edits - it will no longer resemble the original answer. If, however, it got the point across, then edits for details should be the norm – Raystafarian Feb 4 '12 at 12:37
