How to insert image in a post thread?

Solution
Notice you're having trouble with uploading images on the site. Sorry for the extra work. Here is a little tutorial to help:

1. Go to https://imgur.com/

2. Upload your image by clicking on the New post (green button on the top left hand corner, next to logo).

3. Click Choose Photo/Video then Select your file.

4. Once the image is uploaded, hover the mouse over to the image and you should see a button with 3-dots in it.

"didn't work" doesn't provide enough information to say where you went astray.

Members having difficulties sometimes get hung up on step#6.
Instead of just cutting and pasting, they tend to click on one of the icons at the top of the post.

You need to just cut&paste. No clicking.

The other place that causes a problem, is after members cut&paste, they expect their image to appear.
The image will not appear until you post reply.

Just my opinion, but imgur images for use on this site are not the best option as it takes you to a different site to view, and the zoom is remains difficult to see. One work around I have used, that I believe many people will have the option to utilize, is to send a direct message to yourself on discord. Sending an image on discord and then using the "open image" url destination works great and allows us to view images directly on this site in full view.

Thank you for your suggestion, but the full view and zoom mode work just fine on here as well.
