I tried to embed an image in my previous question, but nothing appears once it has been comitted ...
I tried 3 different approaches :
Using the 'Insert image' button and entering an external URL
Using the 'Insert image' button and selecting a local file to upload
Using the standard < img > tag
I finally gave up and used a standard href within a < a > tag but obviously you have to click it to see anything...
Try : will it work using the first method ?
Pretty sure it's broken (not an answer, but it's not just you).
From what I've seen, uploading doesn't work yet and embedding from an outside url is spotty but*can* work. Not sure what the proper incantation/sacrifice combo is for it, unfortunately.
For the first method make sure you don't mess up the link section at the bottom! The spaces have to be exactly like they are generated and there always have to be at least one empty line between your text and the link section. I never had problems using external images. I never tried < img src="" /> yet but i guess it should work as well...
Well, as you can see I tried one more time but it didn't worked either... Feel free to edit the page to see if I did a mistake (and if I did, feel free to taunt me as-well :))
The point is you didn't use an URL to an image. The url you're using leads to a webpage.
The URL you're using:https://picasaweb.google.com/111582834588121603172/UnityHelpForTransparentObjectsSorting#5628979854712057138
The URL to the image inside this webpage which you should use:https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-FXvbscVgvTw/Th4nWq_xLTI/AAAAAAAAAA8/z_vyFFxAl6U/schema.png
At the moment i use only my public folder in my dropbox. It's the only (free) storage that doesn't get deleted after a few month ;) If you have dropbox just copy the image (or whatever) into the public folder, right-click it and select "copy public link" in the dropbox menu.

Your first option should work and does.
Your second option should work but doesn't (bug).
That's quite odd... I didn't see anything except for the alternative text when using the first option... I'll try again at a later time !
I've marked this community wiki, so you can Edit to see the exactly markdown and see if yours differs when you use the image button (I.e. some sort of Ajax browser difference).
Unfortunately, I see no edit button for your answer !
I'm marking my question as "Community wiki" too, if your kind enough to reproduce your tag there...
