When you write your question, just include the http link to the image, and add a comment requesting a high rep user links it for you.
Hopefully you will have enough rep to do this yourself very soon.
As regards how to get reputation, read the reputation section of the faq.
Just add s for small, m for medium or l for large onto the end of the code in your imgur url. For example:
You can then link the image to the full-size image so when it's clicked on it goes to the original URL.
Is there some reason I should use
Yes, the image uploader tied to the WMD Editor toolbar uploads to Stack Exchange's imgur account which never expire. In addition, the team routinely backs up the images to Stack Exchange's server, so there are redundant back ups of the image archive.
Imgur may claim that at least one view every 6 months will result in ...
I learned quite a bit looking into this.
I think the link to the source (which includes both the author's contact information and the license information) is sufficient in this case. However, below are some of the legal specifics I found...
As Daniel Beck mentioned in the question comments, the author of the work needs to specify the method of ...
What if you can't post images?
These restrictions are in place to prevent spam. If you can't post your image, but already uploaded it to the editor, look for the images the editor automatically embedded for your. It will look like this:
![enter image description here]
![enter image description here]
Remove the exclamation marks, and the editor won't ...
Summing up the comments
Here's what we essentially need.
High reputation users should probably keep an eye on the edit queue -and improve and accept rather than reject edits related to this fix up. If you're a lower rep user, feel free to edit, and link back here (and if you see anything that needs to be fixed up along with images, please do so). This ...
New users need at least 10 reputation in order to post images. They also need more than 10 rep to post more than 2 links.
This is mainly an anti spam measure and does not (usually) significantly affect the user. Considering 10 reputation can be achieved by one upvote on an answer or two question upvotes it is a trivial inconvenience.
It should probably be ...
Low-rep users actually can upload images with the built-in upload tool (to stack.imgur.com). What they can't do is display those images inline, which is what the upload tool inserts. It's a little unintuitive that a warning appears saying you can't insert images, when the link by itself would have been fine.
An improvement could be made here - if a user ...
Why do you believe that what you are presenting is malformed? When you see:
[![enter image description here]]
This seems to be the new behavior of the image upload/insertion tool and it makes sense. Here is the breakdown of why:
Previously, an uploaded image would simply be:
![enter image description here]
And while you were able to see that ...
The word graphics on your question there is a tag. Every question must have at least one tag. For example, this question here has two, support and images.
Where you meant for there to be an image, there was the word "transparent" as a link to the image. To prevent abuse, new users are not allowed to embed images on a handful of large Stack Exchange sites ...
If you want to find out (more generally) about the formatting and content you can add to a post, click the ? at the top right corner of the input text area when writing a post.
A new bar with categories will appear. The buttons this help item applies to will jump up and down repeatedly when you click on a category, and extensive help on that topic ...
The status quo:
User posts bad question.
Flow-chart occurs as in your first image.
With picture promotion:
User posts bad question, ignoring the helpful neon lights and <blink> tags pushing for a picture of the problem. ("Take a moment to lear--Reading? What is this outlandish concept? I don't want to read. I WNAT ASNWER!!11shiftone!")
Screenshots or any image inserted using the "insert image" button will be automatically uploaded to a dedicated Stack Exchange account on Imgur. So long as the answer lives and receives some views then the image is likely to be available longer than the source page that it came from.
In most cases I would personally prefer the source to be inserted as ...
Cannot agree more. This would be a major improvement. Let's see if this gets picked up by the development team.
Would it be more applicable to global meta.stackexchange.com then to just meta.superuser.com?
When using the markdown editor, the user is prompted to enter an image caption, which automatically gets converted to alt text. Some users are good at doing this, while others are lazy and don't add alt text. Unfortunately there isn't much the site can do to change this – the alt text required for each image is of course contextual, so it's up to the ...
The moral of the story is:
Don't intimately mix Markdown and HTML in the same narrow block of code, because Markdown being a regex based solution will not know how to treat some elements.
Which should tell you exactly what happened to the post in question. The parser got confused. Technically when the markdown parser encounters HTML it should quit ...
Solution #2.2 and #4.2
I thought I would just expand a little on the previously posted solution number 2 and 4 here to sum it all up. There are six thumbnail sizes you can use with images uploaded to the Imgur service. Each one is accessable by appending a single character suffix to the end of the image ID, and before the file extension. The thumbnails are ...
Yet another way to create image thumbnails, and perhaps the most comprehensive way there is, and that allow you to control the size of the thumbnails is by using the img HTML tag.
The code for this looks like this:
[<img src="http://i.stack.imgur.com/humpn.png" height="150">]
[<img src="http://i.stack.imgur.com/Q1dJ6.png" height="...
I believe that the settings are good in their current state. Yes, it's likely that someone with enough rep will eventually edit the post to embed the image for the user, and this make more work for someone. Still, I don't think it should be automated.
The problem with automation is that there's no review of the image before it is embedded if the system ...
Another way to create thumbnails is to append the letter m at the end of the file name for a given URL, but before the file extension. So you would upload your images, note down the URL and add the m letter for each image you want a small thumbnail version of.
It would look something like this:
One way to create thumbnails is to have two sets of image files. One set would be high-res images, and the second set would be low-res images. So you would essentially take your screenshots, and then process them, i.e. re-size them. (You can use a program like IrfanView to batch re-size all of them at once, as opposed to opening each image in an ...
