Posting a picture / image; how to add or embed an image or video in a post

HOW TO EMBED IMAGES: See tutorial information in posts 1 - 4.


Not every Forum accepts the embedding of images; for those that do, please follow the FlyerTalk Rules. From the FlyerTalk Rules:

8. Posting of Images link to this rule.
You may embed non-animated images in your posts. Your images must conform to all FlyerTalk content rules, must convey relevant, on-topic information and are not allowed in signature lines or user profiles other than in the space designated in your profile for your picture. (See also, Rule 2 — User Profiles.) Please size your images large enough to get your point across but not so that they distort FlyerTalk standard column widths.
To attach of a doc, docx, gif, jpe, jpeg, jpg, pdf, png, xls or xlsx file from your device, or to add a thumbnail (or up to six thumbnail photos to your post, see the first and second posts in this thread.

NOTE: At this time, embedding animated images is not allowed (see this link to the FlyerTalk rule).

(Posts with embedded or attached videos, files or images made here as tests of how this works will routinely be deleted for systems efficiency.

​​​​​​Even posting pix to FT has its perils. I went back to refer to a post I made in a few years ago that included a pic I uploaded to my FT album, and there link was broken. Apparently at some point the URL structure for FT photo albums got reorganized.

Links from FT should still work -- can you provide me a link to the broken photo?

I already updated the previous post I mentioned, but here's another one:

The photo's still there, but the link in the post which used to work, no longer does.

Are you clicking on the first link, or the second link? The second link is to the photo album page, on which the photo is displayed, sure.

The first link is the original post in which the photo itself used to be embedded. If you click on the first link into the Delta Forum Lounge thread, do you see an image there? I don't. (Though I see IBobi has been experimenting with it)

Zorak, please don't update that post with the non-functional picture URL. I'm asking our tech team if there's a mass fix that's possible and need it as an example.
