How do I upload pictures to the site? I saw the <img> tag on a list of basic HTML so I tried:

<img src="C:\TOM Files\downloads\cakephpscreenshot.jpg" />

but it doesn't work. I think adding some screenshots will better help in presenting my questions.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

That is a local address, that is that it is only on your machine. Try uploading it to an image host (such as imgur) and linking it that way. – Reese Moore May 18 '11 at 1:35
This is going to be difficult – juan May 18 '11 at 1:55
Looks like it wasn't that difficult @Juan – kenwarner May 18 '11 at 3:03

Awesome, I didn't you could upload here on SO... – awendt Jul 30 '12 at 12:03

You click on the little image icon and it will ask you whether you wan to upload to a image hosting site, or to SO directly. Do what you wish.

SO uploads it to, an image hosting site, so it doesn't make a difference where you shove it, so it'll display fine from anywhere.

I love the way you can drag and drop like 50 images into the browser window to download. It's quite useful. – Blender May 21 '11 at 15:50
