jewelfox: A portrait of a foxgryphon with a beak, black fur, magenta hair, fox ears, and a neckband with a large jewel on it. (Default)

... for all Dreamwidth users!

First, you can use Markdown on Dreamwidth by putting "!markdown" at the start of a post, without the quotation marks! This lets you use Markdown formatting instead of HTML (it's way simpler and less verbose), and automatically link to other DW accounts with an at-sign like on Twitter.

Second, you can upload pictures to Dreamwidth without using email! Just visit https://www.dreamwidth.org/file and click on "Upload Images." The "Image Code" it gives you creates a 100x100 thumbnail, but you can just copy the URL inside of the "a href" part and then put that in an <img> or Markdown image tag. Don't forget to add alt text for accessibility purposes!

Note that DW's hosting seems to choke on anything over 1 MB, so please remember to resize your pic and/or convert it to .jpg. You may also want to put something like this in your journal's custom CSS, to keep pictures from taking over the screen and going outside of your entries:

img { max-width: 100% !important; max-height: 600px; }

There are a handful of other CSS hacks I use as boilerplate for any DW journal. Maybe I ought to post them sometime. :>
