I have posted answers of some questions but they are incomplete without figures. I am unable to add diagrams in my answers. Could anybody tell me how to add diagrams in answers?

Does this help?

Sort by:

1) First create a figure. This seems obvious, but this step is very crucial.

2) Upload the image to an image hosting site. Imgur works best for me.

3) Use this code: ! [Whatever] (direct url to the image). Delete the spaces in between.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the help.

I followed your advice but an icon of an image is being displayed instead of full image. Something like this-

Figure

You have to use the image url instead of the link to the page. Click the 'pencil' icon to see the changes made to your comment. · 2 years, 9 months ago

Thank you Mursalin. Please try this question. I think you would like to solve it. :D · 2 years, 9 months ago

Can you guys tell me the names of sites (other than Imgur) through which we can upload images. · 2 years, 9 months ago

You can images by using markdown. The syntax

 ![title](image url-link)


will display the image that you linked to.

For example,

 ![Erdos with Terrance Tao](http://i.imgur.com/1Khk7H4.jpg)


will produce

Erdos with Terrance Tao

Note: Make sure you use the image URL link (which often ends with the file extension jpg or png), as opposed to linking to an entire website. Staff · 2 years, 9 months ago
