Re: Posting How To - Examples Attaching Images
Images are a special case of attached files. If possible, the image is displayed as-is, within the post. If, however, the image is too wide, we create a thumb-nail of the image and display that. The original image can be recovered by clicking on the thumbnail.
If multiple images are uploaded, they are laid out in a grid. The grid is no more than 3 columns wide, and as many rows as necessary. An image can occupy 1, 2 or all 3 of the columns, depending on its width. Thumbnails occupy just one column.
Hot linking images
<img src=".."> are automatically changed to post attachments at time of post creation, if the source URL is available to be fetched.
This is also a quick way of attaching images that you may otherwise have to download, save, then upload.
