I still can't add images to questions here on this forum, I hit image upload (ctrl-g) it uploads and shows the image in a separate window and then the only thing I can click is "cancel and add another image". Or I can click outside the upload window, but then it does not upload. I can't click "use this image" or anything that would confirm the upload. I'm on a Mac using Safari (Version 8.0.7 (10600.7.12))

    $\begingroup$ We do not support old versions of browsers - the current version of Safari is 9.1. $\endgroup$ – Oded May 24 '16 at 9:54

You can only upload images in a supported format: jpg, PNG, tiff, bmp or gif.

If you try to upload an unsupported file type, should show you a warning :

enter image description here

Also, see if you can scroll around the new window that's created. You should see something like this: enter image description here

It's possible that the button is just hidden at the bottom of the window. Lastly, try a different browser to find out if it's a browser compatibility issue.

Images are limited to 2Mb in size. For larger images or unsupported formats consider uploading to a different host and adding the link to it on your post.

If the keyboard shortcut doesn't work try using the icon to add images:

  • $\begingroup$ Hi Guys thanks for all the answers. Using the image button or the upload image brings up the window you show, and I see my image in it. I tried firefox in firefox I see the add image button. On a Safari it snaps the pop-up window right to the bottom right corner and there is no resizing that is going to help me to actually be able to click the add picture button. I guess I can't use Safai with Stack Exchange. I'll just use Firefox, than. Thanks again for the replies. $\endgroup$ – Andras Libal May 25 '16 at 3:13
