I came across a question which was from a new user and I was not sure about the exact solution but had an image that could have been useful in that scenario.

And as I was not sure it could be the answer so it would have been a good option to attach the image in comment but could not find it in the help for comments.

No, comments do not support images.

You can only link to an image. You can even use a blank post window to upload that image to the Stack Exchange imgur.com service (just use the image button, copy the URL, don't actually submit the post).

  • Ohh is it? That's great. Will try that out. Thanks. Nice trick/ – Narendra Pathai Jul 23 '13 at 10:14
  • Will the image link not become invalidated if it is not attached in any post? How does that work? – Narendra Pathai Jul 23 '13 at 10:15
  • @NarendraPathai: There is no validation of image links as far as I know. – Martijn Pieters Jul 23 '13 at 10:16
  • So once I upload an image on Stack Exchange service it remains there forever? – Narendra Pathai Jul 23 '13 at 10:18
  • Define "forever" haha. Probably as long as imgur exists. – Old Checkmark Jul 23 '13 at 10:19

    It remains there as long as there is an agreement between Stack Exchange and Imgur, yes. It may even mean that if ever that agreement ended, that Stack Exchange would migrate all those images elsewhere and fix all the links. – Martijn Pieters Jul 23 '13 at 10:20
