Adding a picture to a story

I think it would be great to have the possibility of adding a picture as a cover (or inserted withing text) for a story.

I agree, this would be very appreciated.  I donít use pictures often, but recently Iíve found a nice stock image to be a good way of describing a characterís appearance with minimal fuss.

This is something that Iíd like to do but it isnít as simple as it seems. You canít just use stock images unless you have bought them and I canít host them unless I know you are allowed to use it. Plus I would have to store the images which could get expensive with hosting costs. Also what if someone uploads an inappropriate/illegal image and Iím storing it under my name?

Originally I had a ďcover photoĒ function in the system but the above considerations meant it is on the back burner for now unfortunately. Any advice on how to achieve this and mitigate the above issues would be gratefully received.

Hmm, maybe a interim solution would be putting a link on the position, which leads to the external source of it? Of course if the source is removed the link would broken...

I think links are probably the way to go. My old Tumblr blog was an attempt to re-create the spanking photo stories of old. Sadly it has fallen victim to the great Tumblr purge. I am currently experimenting with BDSMLR as a possible alternative.  The story could have a link to the BDSMLR site where images related to the story would be hosted. The reader would need to be registered on both sites but it might be the easiest from the point of view of hosting costs/ copyright concerns etc.

This is a great suggestion. I am new here and hadn't heard of BDSMLR. I've just registered there and will post illustrations to the stories I post here. Like so many others, my Tumblr was purged and I seek new ways to connect and entertain.

For those that are not aware you can now embed pictures in stories by hosting them on imgur, this is still a little experimental but it does work.
