How do you add pictures to comments?

Hi guys!

I know this seems lame that I don't know how to do this, but I have seen people add pictures of the duolingo website onto their comments to respond to questions. I have also seen them circle things on the website and draw arrows (I think, I don't know if that is what they are doing). How would I be able to do that?

Thank you!

  1. Type this " ! [ ] ( ) " without the quotations marks or the spaces.

  2. Find an image then copy image address

  3. Copy into the second pair of parentheses

  4. Then post!

Oh, so on the imgur post you need to right-click, then choose 'copy image location'. the image location has a different URL from the actual imgur post, and it also has the file ending.

Hi there! I'm trying to do this (have followed the instructions with the imgur address in between the (). It's not working. Am I missing something?

It might be the type of url you're trying to embed. If the pic is already on a page, you have to find the link to JUST the image, not the link to the page that the pic is on. I hope that helps. :)
