    I tried to upload a drawing for critique, but when I clicked on the "insert/edit image" button, all I got was a text box with a label that says "source". How does that work?

    Hi Setuwegus, I'm sorry you're having issues!

    Can you tell us a bit more about what's happening? What device are you using? Which browser does this happen in? Does it happen in other browsers also? Does the image end in .jpg, .png or .gif?

    The more info we have, the better we can help you. :)

    Hi,

    I have the same problem, in the section insert/edit, there is a option: Source. The next to Source there is a empty space. I clic here but nothing happen.

    So, I can't download my work.

    Hi Maria,

    Thanks for explaining! The feature you're trying to make work doesn't allow for uploading or downloading images (uploading is when you try to get an image from your computer onto a site, downloading is when you're trying to get an image from a site to your computer). It's for when you have images uploaded to a different website, then you can copy and paste the URL into the blank space. That will make the image show in your posts.

    If I do this:

    Then it will show the image from that URL as an image. This is the URL: https://i.imgur.com/ooGMLtn.png
    And it will look like this when posted:

    You can try uploading your images to a site such as www.imgur.com and then copy and pasting the link to the image in your forum posts!

    I hope this helps. :)

    Hey Maria, sorry it took me a bit to get back to you!

    Let's see, the code you're using is this:

    https://imgur.com/lXLOvyt

    See how https://imgur.com/lXLOvyt does not end in .jpg or .png or .gif ? If you go to that link and right-click on the image, then click 'Copy image address' (or if your device is not in English, a similar phrase), it should copy a link that looks like this:

    https://i.imgur.com/lXLOvyt.jpg

    Now if you copy and paste this into your post, it will automatically look like this:

    I hope that helps!
