- You can add an uploaded image to your biostars post. The image should be accessible to the public via a straightforward URL. Do not use Google Drive/DropBox/any website that requires log-in
- Method 1: Upload the image, get the image direct URL (should end with an image file extension such as
.png, and when you open the link in a browser, it should show only the image) and use with the image option on the biostars toolbar
- Method 2: Upload the image, get the embed HTML code and use it as part of the post text.
I have removed the cubeupload method, as imgbb universally works for everyone.
UPDATE - 2
The direct URL must end in
.jpg or a similar image file extension.
If the image direct URL you're using looks like this, you're doing it wrong: https://ibb.co/aBcDeF - see how it doesn't end in a
.jpg or a
.png or a similar image file extension?
