I can't do it through copy and paste--- but there must be a way. Others seem to be able to do it. (Askedon the off chance that someone might answer).

<img src="yourimagehere"> make sure you put your image in imgur and copy the link to the image and replace "yourimagehere" and wala imgur is free and you dont need an account

I didn't see anyone who had the answer - Passphrase by TwoDecks this works for internal images on Deviantart.

Everything that I'm looking at doesn't work.... Could someone actually give me freaking steps so that it's clear? All of this stuff isn't working.

this is the way to add images.. when you are going to write journal, see the right side, theres 'add media'. and there are '', deviantart, and 'emoticons', click 'deviantart'. choose the image that you want to put. tadaaa! now you a picture in your journal. finish :D

Having had this question myself, and not having the directions work for me; further investigation was needed and this is what I found.

To use html tags, you need to be in [html edit mode], it cannot be done in [Rich Txt Mode<Default]

Just go to your Journal top bar, goto [Edit] and choose [Switch to HTML Mode], and there you will have it work.

Well, I don't know much, but if I put the thumb code in my journals it seems to work, and I don't have premium... :/

you can put free thumbnails in your journal!
there are some thumbs just for premium membership, but there are quite a lot of free ones too if you just search them up :)
NilRecurring Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011
I was wondering the same, then I found out you can use HTML tags to do it.

example: <img src="[link]"/>

replace the link with the link to an image.

I know this is like a year old, but I thought I'd do it anyways, just incase other people find this.
Hipster-Doq Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
dude, it's not working.
NilRecurring Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013
Show we what you're writing.
czmAvery Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Iz not working ...
NilRecurring Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
Example of one of mine working here: [link]

<img src="[link]" alt="" />

you have to A) have the correct syntax and B) make sure the link is the link to the image itself and not the page the image is on.

TheFantaSim Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2010   General Artist
Yes, you have to have a premium subscription in order to add thumbs to your journal. :(
velvetdelirium Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2010
You can only use thumbnails (images for the journal) if you have a subscription, except if you're posting thumbnails in deviantart chat/dAMN. :nod:
