How to upload an image to a post?

I am a new developer to Android. Whenever I used to have some question I would be asking on Stack Overflow and would be getting most of the solutions there. Some of the users asked me to upload an screenshot for my query. How do I insert the screenshots for my queries?

    Above the editor, there's an orange button with a question mark that goes here: stackoverflow.com/editing-help

    I think you should ask questions about how to use SO on the meta site. meta.stackoverflow.com

First you should realise, you need at least 10 reputation points to be able to use images in your post. You can check the accompanying reputation page, which also explains how to use images in your post at the bottom.

From that page:

How do I add images and links to my posts?

We use Markdown to format posts, so there are a variety of ways of adding links:

  • bare urls http://example.com
  • HTML <a href="http://example.com">example link</a>
  • Markdown [example link](http://example.com)
  • the editor toolbar button insert link toolbar button Icon

Images can be added similarly:

  • HTML <img src="http://example.com/img.jpg">
  • Markdown ![sample image](http://example.com/img.jpg)
  • the editor toolbar button insert image toolbar button Icon

Just to give you some graphical aid, which I always love:

Click there

  • But how do you crop an image you added?

There is a button for uploading images in the WYSIWYG editor. It's the 6th one from the left.
