Pasting screenshots?

how do i paste a screenshot in this workspace?

I notice here you say workspace, and in a reply to John M you say forum. Can you clarify which you're trying to put a picture into?

To post a screenshot in the forum, you'll need to use some code from the Markdown Cheatsheet (there is a link next to/under the box where you type out your question).

You could also upload it to an image hosting site and then use the link mark-up to link to that upload from within your post.

Try Imgur as a good image hosting site!

Hey Ingrid,

Try pasting the screenshot to the desktop and dragging it into the workspace.

Hope this helps.

Hey John, thanks for the help. Tried it but when i drag the screenshot the treehouse forum disappears. Is there a specific percentage of pixel that the screenshot should be?
