What’s the recommended syntax for an image with a link?

I understand why the image is scaled, but how do I link to the full size version? Every time I highlight it and click to add a link, it removes the image and leaves the description without a link around it.

  • Have you tried throwing a hyperlink to the full image on top of the image blocks?

  • @Mysticial What are "image blocks"? Can you give me an example of what that would look like in text? Thanks Commented Jan 16, 2013 at 2:33
  • In the markdown, there should be some blocks that are where the image should go. Although I've never tried it myself, I might be possible to just throw a hyperlink over the whole thing.

  • @Mysticial Yeah that's what I've tried. When I do that (by clicking the link button) it removes the link and leaves the description as plain text. Commented Jan 16, 2013 at 2:35
  • Ah... then I dunno... :(

After uploading your image, the editor auto-inserts the Markdown code for displaying the image:

![enter image description here][1]

To link to the full-sized image, wrap a [...][1] around the above code:

[![enter image description here][1]][1]

Adjust the link number accordingly.
