Hey! dev.to's editor uses Markdown, and you can use the Markdown format to insert images:
![alt text for accessibility](example-link-here.png)

We have two ways of uploading images.

Here's an example for an article:
button for article image upload

For commenting, you can use this button:
button for comment image upload

And then use the link that shows up to put into the Markdown editor:
article image upload link example

Or for comments:
comment image upload link example

You can read more in our editor guide.

If you want your image to be the post's cover image, use cover_image: following by your image URL in the --- meta tags section.

Upload image as cover image of a post

where do you find the list of images you uploaded? I uploaded a bunch in a row and now I need the links to embed in post?

Has something changed since then? I can't find a way to upload an image here. Is it supposed to be hosted externally?
Would really appreciate any help!
