    I can never figure out how to post images, and I'm not exactly clear on what ones are allowed here, so I just stick with the links.

    •  In the future, if you need to post a picture (4+ / 0-)

      ... what you do is upload it in a jpeg or other photo file format to a photo hosting website such as photobucket or flicker.  This "holds" the photo for you and assigns it its very own web address, or url.  And then you resize if necessary, before or after uploading, and copy and paste the url into the comment or diary.
      Then when you preview, the diary/comment should display the photo.

      That one above has been all over the internet so many times it has more milage than the tanker. It's been photoshopped and colorized and altered enough to try to pass it off as an "illustration" or original artwork.

      There are two types of photos that are safe to post on dailykos. One, photos you took yourself, or artwork you made yourself, aka "originals," that's what I do so I don't have to worry about some **** ***** Reeper asswipe claiming copywrite violation and sueing Markos.  This is also what the cartoonists do, and the photoshop satirists.  The others are photos which are already considered to be in the public domain, and fall under the "fair use" rules.  There are websites full of these.  Some of them are not even pictures of cats. Also, if you have permission from the original creator of the photo, you can use it.

      Here's a diary from february that explains this in more detail:
