As Mind42 doesn't offer upload itself you have to resort to other available free online service. I usually recommend Dropbox. It's an online disk where you can get URLs for the uploaded files that you can use with Mind42.

Hi,

I used Dropbox and got this message after insterting the URL:
"There was an error loading the image"

What to do?

Thanks;)

Do you have an example of the URL you used for me?

Ah ok I see. Seems they've changed their system as well (I think I remember reading something about this). It's the same problem here. This is not a link to the image. This a link to a website showing the image (menu on top, comments to the right and so on). This kind of links can only be integrated as web link, not as direct image.

Hmmm. That's unfortunate. Right now I don't know what to recommend next.
A quick Google searched revealed for example http://pasteboard.co
There you can upload the image, and again, the first link you get points to a homepage showing the image (e.g. http://pasteboard.co/4E1sqDRNQ.png). But on the upper right of this page you'll find an embed URL (here e.g. https://cdn.pbrd.co/images/4E1sqDRNQ.png) which is a link to the image itself which will work with Mind42.

I've got the same error when using like "file:///C:/Users/jack/Pictures/JACK.PNG" I think it's pointing to the picture itself. But why doesn't work?

That's a link to an image stored on your local computer, not on the internet, where Mind42 can access it.
