Please add more information to FAQ:6 (How do I add pictures to my journal entries?)

Current version:


To add a picture to your journal entry, use an "img" tag where you want it to appear:

<img src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/somepicture.jpg" alt="title or description" />

Please see http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=130 for information on image loading requirements.



Suggestion Revision:


To add an image/picture to your journal entry, use an inline <img> HTML tag where you want the image/picture to appear:

<img src="http://www.your-website.com/image.jpg" alt="title or description" />

Within the code, the value assigned to src, http://www.your-website.com/image.jpg, must be replaced by the actual URL of the image you want to display.

The value assigned to alt can be a short summary referencing the context of the image. This will allow the text summary to appear (in place of the image) while the image is loading This also allows text appear when the user hovers over the image. If you do not wish to include any summary text, simply leave out the alt entirely or use alt="".

(literal translation: alt=<double quote><double quote>)

Please see http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=130 for information on image loading requirements.





Reason for changes:

1) Not enough information is provided explaining what src and alt does.
2) Using the same example URL as that of the background URL will help things be a little consistent.

Color highlighting is optional :)
