How to add figures in answers?

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?

Follow these steps:

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

Is there any way to add full image in the comments or answers?

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.

Can you guys tell me the names of sites (other than Imgur) through which we can upload images.

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

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.
