Thread for uploading images for use in iNaturalist comments

Fun rookie skills:

I just learned how to embed online images in comments and discussions on iNaturalist.org. (Via the handy “tips and tricks” tutorial on inserting html code into comments.)

However, since there’s no built-in way to upload a new image directly into a comment, I figured a handy work-around would be to upload the image to the iNaturalist Forum first, then add a link to that image in my comment on iNaturalist.org.

It’s a handy tip, so I thought I’d share it with any other iNaturalist rookies.

Here’s the image I want to include in my comment:

Now, I can paste the html code into my comment. Voila: an image in my comment on iNaturalist.org!

The format I used in the comment is < img src=“the whole link from copy image address operation on the photo here, in quotes” > where the spaces on the insides of < and > are removed.
