Problem embedding images in Live post


I'm sorry, I'm sure this has an unbelievably simple fix, but I've been tearing my hair out for hours trying to resolve it! ...

 

I'm trying to post a skin, with a large portrait format of it as the main image, and further additional images embedded in the text which are only visible when the post is opened up  - so basically a very regular style of live presentation.

 

I was under the impression if I had "<livecut>" (minus the quotation marks) in the text, and a link to the image location beneath then the image linked to would show up. Unfortunately in my case, it doesn't. I ether get a text link to imgur,  or (when trying to link to my images uploaded to Live) no image or link at all.

 

Any help would be much appreciated as I have a slew of skins to update, and new ones to upload, and this issue is stopping me in my tracks!

 

thanks.

Upload your images to Imgur.com, then prepare to add the following line of code into your camouflage text:

<img src="https://i.imgur.com/*****" alt="*****">

It looks like this for the text in one of my camos:
<img src="https://i.imgur.com/J6beh9x.jpg" alt="J6beh9x.jpg">

Make sure to have the https://i.imgur.com/ link (a.k.a. the _direct_ image link), otherwise it won't work!

That's basically the copy&paste text which I prepare for these kind of situations. And it works as long as you make sure you're uploading a skin, location, hangar or something in this direction. Or in other words:

Embedding images doesn't work with a simple image or quote post! :wink:

 

Again, to make it more clear with the last part:

https://i.imgur.com/

 

if it still doesn't work please respond again here and I'll help you :smile:

 

Oh, and the livecut part only is there to reduce the text from the smaller version (the "overview" one) in comparison to the post when you clicked on the post.

Hi Michiyl,

 

At last, that worked for me!  At first I had difficulties as the images on imgur were .pngs which it didn't like, and didn't show. However when I converted them to jpegs it was all good.

 

Thanks for all your help.   o7
