IMG Issues for Sololearners

Many people are asking the same question. "Why doesn't my image work on Sololearn". Usually someone answers that Dropbox should be used. While that may be good for some, DropBox has a limit on the amount of storage you get before you must pay. For codes that take many images, this isn't something you want to be using. Well, there are two very good ways to get images that I use all the time, that will eliminate this, and other issues. I am sure some of you use these already, but for those who don't, hopefully this can be some help to. 1: If the image you want is online, (for example, something that showed up with a quick google search, or maybe something you found on a website). Right click the image you want. Next, click "view image info" (or similar. Only used my computer). A pop-up should appear, along with some info on your image. All can be ignored, except for the Location. The location should be a link something like this: Simply make your <img src="link"> replacing link with your link, and you have the image! 2: Some images are personal ones that aren't anywhere on the web. For these, there are some great tools to help us. The one I suggest, is Simply click "Start Uploading" browse through your photos, pick the one you want, click "upload", and make sure under Embed Codes: you have HTML Full Linked selected, and copy! The images will be hosted to their site. I don't know of any security issues, but if you don't want your images there, I suggest going ahead with DropBox. I hope this information is as useful to you, as it has been to me, and that you get a lot of use out of them. ATTENTION Mods: I am an IOS user, and don't have feed posts. I'm not sure if this would be considered off-topic or not, but I have no other means of providing this information. Please let me know if I am somehow breaking the guidelines.

Jax this is useful information for some but you do have other options without feed post like make this into a code. You can even add the code to your comment when you find users asking for help with images.

I see your point Jax but chances are if the user is using the search bar they are getting numerous results on this subject. I also think this is Q&"A" and perhaps a few well tagged answers to FAQ could be tolerated and beneficial. But ultimately this is not my decision to make. I simply try to help users understand and comply with existing rules in place.

Dropbox for me is an accessible option because it provides 2 GB, which is more than enough for academic purposes. In addition, I usually use compression in the images (the downside is that I lose a bit of quality, but it's not something that really hurts the experience). Lately I have thought about using other clouds, since in Dropbox I also store some scripts. The advantage of a cloud over an image storage service is that you have more control over the content, in some services the images are deleted after a period of time (most were not designed to serve as a permanent host of the content), which is a bit annoying.

You could consider use pCloud which offer 20Gb for free account.

bobbie The point of this is not to give to questions asked, but to prevent everyone from asking the questions in the first place. If this were a code, I fear someone who searches for help with images will not be looking in codes. At least, these are my views. I cannot be sure if others share them.
