You are writing a blog post, and would like to add images into the post.

If an image is already online, you can point the cursor to the image and drag it to the desired location in the post. When no copyright statement appears on the original web page, the web page is likely under a Creative Commons License, just as iMechanica is. If you are unsure of copyright, please contact the creator of the web page.

To make the text wraps around the image, do the following:

  1. Click the image in your post. A frame will appear around the image.
  2. Click the first button in the second row in the toolbar of the post window. A small window pops up.
  3. In the field called “alignment”, select one option. Then click “update” in the bottom-left corner.

If an image is in your computer, you can upload the image to the server of iMechanica. To do so, follow the following steps:

  1. Click the button “add image” below the posting window. A small window pops up, displaying existing images on the server.
  2. Click “Upload” at the top of the pop-up window. Enter a title, browse the image, and then go to the bottom to click "Submit".
  3. A lot of text appears.  Ignore the text, and cimply click “Start Over” at top right corner. You will see the image in the small window. 

Point your cursor to the image, and drag it into your post. You can make the text wrap around the image by following the steps outlined above.

An image uploaded to the server of iMechanica joins all other images on the server, and will appear at random on the left side of iMechanica.

I tried to add an image to my comment, so I uploaded it first with 'Add image' link in separate window and then dragged it to the original window with my comment.

The preview image appears in the comment and I set it up to be a "link to image page". However, when I preview the comment, the image is a link but points to a page like "http://imechanica.org/img_assist/properties/8626", which is the edit page of the image ;-(

The other feature which is not working - "Insert" button does not insert the image anywhere.

We should improve adding images more user-friendly, I'll be glad to help the web administrators.

 Thanks

I love the support you are giving on being able to add tags. I know that most image uploaders don't give you access to the title tags. This will really help other users find photos that I add when searching online, thanks!
