Including an image
How does one include an image in a DL post? There have been times when I try to describe a situation, but an image would be much better. Here is an example:
It took me a while to understand that the exclamation point is necessary to getting the image to be embedded
But now that I finally get it (duh), I'm most grateful.
By the way, it does work with jpgs. The fireworks I posted here is a jpg, not even from imgur. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1876694$from_email=comment&comment_id=1918124
Thank you, BarbaraMorris. I guessed afterward that any image type will work. But in all the various edits of the first post with embedded images, I had uploaded .pngs as screenshots to replace the .jpgs I had uploaded as well, so I went with .pngs.

Because the URL you are putting in is not a URL of an image, it is the URL of the website that the image comes from. Try right clicking and selecting 'open image in a new tab', then copy the URL and paste it in the equation ! [AltText] (URL) without the spaces
