Adding inline images on Indie Hackers

I've seen some people struggling to add inline images either in posts or comments.

Here's a quick example how I do with Imgur. Assuming you have already created an Imgur account

1/ Go to menu>images


2/ Add Images

Select add images button and select the desired image. After uploading it, Imgur will display this page

3/ Grabbing Markdown

Choose the image you want to add on IH and copy the Markdown link value

4/ Adding to IH

Paste the markdown link adding the exclamation the point before the [ character. It can be done either on post or comment.

5/ Final result
