I am trying to post an answer to a question on Stack Overflow. I get this response

You need at least 10 reputation to post an image

What on earth does it mean, what do I need to do to post an image with my answer ?

    And by the way, you can link to an image, that will be good enough. – Denys Séguret Feb 27 '14 at 6:33
  • if someone doesn't know that what is reputation? and how to earn it. then why people are giving them down vote or close vote? rather then they can give the answer. – Shell Feb 27 '14 at 6:59

    @Nimesh I voted to close as duplicate, because it is a duplicate and I made a short tailored answer to help OP. There were reasons to downvote : OP directly posted on SO main without looking the help and sounded aggressive ("What on earth") which is rarely the best way to get help. – Denys Séguret Feb 27 '14 at 7:09

Right now, just paste a link to your image. This will be good enough.

And if it's relevant and the question is good quality enough, some user will probably inline it directly for a greater comfort of other readers.

If your question is good, and if you answer a few questions yourself, you'll gain those missing 10 points fast enough, so you'll be able to directly include the image. This isn't really a privilege per se, more like a small protection against spammer and trolls.
