The question is on the title, I read on the help how to include links, but the images I want to include are on my pc, not online. Is there a way to upload a file?

Alternatively, is there any public, free, user friendly, site where I can upload my files and then link them here?

(I mean, I would like to NOT register to a site, receive a passwd, periodic mails, ads...)

    $\begingroup$ You have a button with a frame in the answer box, if you press it you can upload the photo that you prefer. $\endgroup$ – A. A. Jul 18 '14 at 8:58

    $\begingroup$ @user126154: images cannot be inserted into comments, however a link to an image can be used as usual. $\endgroup$ – robjohn Jul 18 '14 at 10:32

As I said in my comment you can use the button in the answer box if you are posting an answer. Here you have more info regarding the hosting site:


And here you can see the options that you have for posting a comment. I think you can't post an image there:

    $\begingroup$ When I want to post image in the comment, I simply upload it using the editor for answers. Then I do not post the answer, just copy the url of the image from the draft and use this link in the comment. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Jul 18 '14 at 9:48
