Adding inline images to your post can really help clarify your question or answer.

The way to add an inline image is to paste the image URL in your post and add an exclamation mark at the beginning and end of the URL.

If your image is too wide then there is some html code you can insert into the plain text view of your post that will re size your image to display properly in the forum. Here's how to make your image 600 pixels wide:

<img src="INSERT URL FOR YOUR IMAGE HERE" width="600">

Does this have the same effect as embedding an image?

Yes - The end result of the inline image looks like this:



The image is displayed within the text of your post. Much clearer than adding as an attachment.

There are many (free) cloud storage solutions out there (e.g. Dropbox) that have a public folder capability. Anything you place in that folder has a public URL - a great way to add images.

Here's a link to show how it's done http://www.dropbox.com/help/16

Yes you can but I'm not sure why you'd want to - google "HTML new window"

If you wanna save these complicated steps and find a easy way, you can google imaging sdk and you will find many useful tools, or google how to resize image to get instructive articles. Good luck:) I think image processing programmes can enable to quickly resize pictures . i have use imaging sdk which can original layouts hyperlinks, Images and tables retained in word ,text, image, Epub, html.but i forgot download the wedsite ,go to google. By the way , pay attention to your system platform, select the suitable one . I use an imaging sdk driver found on the internet . Install it and it becomes a selectable processing option.Then you can resize your image in any program at all, including Adobe Acrobat .zoom in or zoom out on your own will. Just open the images, select resize ,and follow the setps given in the sdk, the task will be finished in several seconds. if you haven't found a good choice , you can have a try. best wishes.

Hi, recthor.
Thanks for your suggestion. I agree with you that resizing images using professional 3rd partty imaging programmes can make all the process much simpler and faster. I have ever tested a fine image resizing toolkit offered by another imaging programme. You can also google it and have a try. I hope it helps, too.


Best regards,
Arron
