I have a question about posting pictures onto answers. Whenever I click on the image button, it does this, and I don't know what to do
First question; is this picture a photo from here on a.net? Or from elsewhere on the internet?
Note you cannot insert a (personal/private) image that only exists on your computer or phone.
Short answer; firstly
you need to identify the URL address associated with the picture, then copy & paste it into your answer here on a.net.
Then you need to select the URL text such that it acquires a light blue background, and NOW you can click on the insert image button.
This action places small scripts identified by square brackets [like this] on either side of the URL text.
Here it is , step-by-step
STEP 1; Having selected the appropriate picture, right-click anywhere on the image.
STEP 2; From the dialogue box, choose the final item "Properties"
STEP 3; From this new dialogue box, select and copy the "address: (URL)" - this will usually start "http.....", and end with ".....jpg" Make sure you get it all.
STEP 4; Paste this URL address into your a.net answer,
STEP 5; Use the cursor to select this text (blue background), then click on the Insert image icon.
This action automatically places small scripts identified by square brackets [like this] on either side of the URL address
Here is a URL address from the Wikipedia page on the recent lunar eclipse. It allows you to access the image, but it doesn't display it here on a.net.https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... clipse.jpg
And here it is again with the relevant [script] boxes placed one at the beginning and also at the end. Only you cannot see the scripts, because the whole thing now turns into an image.
It is a similar procedure to using PHOTOID, except that only works for photos sourced here on a.net.
1) Identify a relevant photo, and note the #number
2) Copy & paste, or simply type the number, omitting the "#"
3) Use your cursor to highlight the number e.g. 4825649
4) Click PHOTOID; this action places small scripts identified by square brackets [like this] on either side of the number.
5) Tidy up any spaces, commas, line returns etc that interrupt the script, so that you are left with
I am forced to introduce a rogue "z" to demonstrate the correct script, otherwise it automatically becomes...
There are two things that happen when you get old.
1. You start to lose your memory.
2. What was I saying again?
