How to add an image to a recipe?

I’ve tried to upload an image to imgur.com & pasted the url in comments, but the image doesn’t show. What am I doing wrong?

Well, I did that, but the image still doesn’t show.

Sadly Imgur is not my area: I still haven’t used most file-share options.

@kamanza you have to use the SPECIFIC format/syntax.

The KEY is to choose the IMG LINK with the i.imgur.com

My bad - I had pasted the link in comments instead of notes. Now it works OK. Thanks.

This is how I add images on an iPad,
On Imgur profile, click the plus symbol then chose image from your photo album:
image
The image will come up, chose hidden then click Upload:
image
When the image uploads, do not chose Copy Link, click on the image to clear that screen:image
Then click on the image and chose Copy Post Link
image
Go back to recipe on elr and chose Edit Recipe,
In public notes section paste link for image:
image
You can add other notes above or below the image url if wanted,
Once you hit Save the image will be there:

Someone with time. I was shocked to see Cowtails and not M&H in your screenshot.

You have to make sure “jpeg” is at the end. I had this issue as well. After you post, go out and come back in and hit share, should have the jpeg at the end

@Lynda_Marie I’ll have to check on that, as my usage only seems to require the specific…

i.imgur.com NOT the imgur.com (BBCode / Forums)

I use .png with no issues, at least yet.

Don’t do it, adding an image sets a standard that your recipe is going to taste as good as the photo and they always fall short. So don’t get people’s hopes up.

I want to add an image to a recipe but I don’t know how can I add it. I am so happy after finding this post because over here I have found out how can I add an image to a recipe. I am also very happy because when I was searching for a site online, I have found the https://www.topessaywriting.org/samples/finance website link on google search. I have always got low marks in my essay assignments and I was tired of them. But I don’t think that I will get low marks again. And thanks to SessionDrummer for giving my question answer.

You’re welcome @GloriaDWilbanks.

The image from another site must not be able to be inserted or imgur is restricting it as spam content. In general, if you want to take a picture or a screenshot, it’s easier to provide a link to the image or https://create.vista.com/create/recipe-cards/ if it has recipes. You can write a whole recipe there and share it. In general, if the picture itself is not inserted into the comment, it’s probably a problem with the size or format of the picture and many people change it and upload to the PC and upload here from there
