    These forums do not natively support just including an item from your computer directly (so external hosting is required.)

    If you are referring to uploading an image within your response box, like if you wanted to include an example image of something going wrong on your site, you could just include an <img> tag of a file that you could pull from many of the available image uploading sites (such as ImgurPicasaPhotobucketImageShack, etc.)


    Steps (Using Imgur)

    1. Create an image of what you want to upload (using either a screenshot, a drawing program or the Snipping Tool)
    2. Go to Imgur (or any of the available hosting options) and select Upload an Image (from Computer)
    3. Select the Image that you wish to upload
    4. After uploading - you should see a list of various codes along the right
    5. You can copy the contents of the HTML Image box and paste it within the HTML contents of your Response (in the forum)
    6. Alternatively - after uploading you can use the Image button within the Response Toolbar to select the proper URL and Description and the Image will be inserted.

    The above steps were specifically for Imgur, however all of the mentioned sites offer very easy to use image hosting services. Basically, once your image is uploaded to any of these sites, you can use an <img> tag within your response in here just as you would using HTML :

    <img src="Your URL to your Hosted Image" />

    Hi, NewToDotyNet,


    Here is an easy-understanding way to upload the image on a forum post. 

    • Use stackoverflow's image upload function, which is provided by Imgur


    Following the steps:

    1.Open a stackoverflow question and look at the reply section (click image button).

    2. Drop or browse your picture and click "Add picture". You will find it will give you a picture URL.

    3. Copy the URL, open the "Insert/Edit image" when you start your post and paste the URL

    4. Click Ok


    Then you should be able to find that the image has been attached in your post.


    Note that it may be not that convenient if you have batches of picture.


    Hope this can help you.

    Best regards,
