Sometimes when I want to comment on an observation, the best way to explain a point I’m trying to get across is to add a diagram/gif file/annotated jpg or similar. If it’s something that’s on-line already, fine—I can just link to it. But if it’s something I’ve created and it doesn’t have a life anywhere but on my desktop, I’m not sure how to add it. I can’t copy and paste to insert it in a comment, and I can’t paste it into a journal post and link to that. Is there a simple way to add a file like this to the site so I can link to it in a comment? It could either be directly into a comment (ideal), or in some other location on the site so I can link to it in the comment (acceptable).
Example: I looked at this obs: https://inaturalist.nz/observations/30860156, IDed as a hare. After doing some checking, I thought it was more likely to be a rabbit. I put together a composite of a photo from a website, with my annotations, plus one of the original photos from the obs for comparison, and took a screen shot. Much easier than trying to write out a lengthy explanation about the width of gaps in the skulls. However, the only obvious (but ugly) way I could see to show this was to load it as a fake ‘observation’ https://inaturalist.nz/observations/31106990 and link to that in a comment on the original post (as noted, I’ll remove the ‘obs’ as soon as it’s no longer needed).
Mission accomplished, but very untidy. Surely there’s a better way.
