Last July we launched our kick ass image library:

Using the Images Function on Daily Kos from dailykos on Vimeo.

This image library allows subscribers to upload images to the site via a drag and drop interface, and then embed those images -- and that of the rest of the community (including editors) -- into their posts and comments.

Now that the elections are over, we are extending the image uploading capabilities to all registered users on the site. Everyone can now upload images and embed them in their posts. And if you want your stuff to be read, including (legal) artwork makes a huge difference in getting people to read and share.

Note, non-subscribers won't be able to access the community repository of images. They'll only be able to use the stuff they themselves upload.

Again, you can get instructions on the upload stuff in the video above, but if video isn't your thing, click here for step-by-step instructions in using the image uploader. Regardless, it should be pretty self-explanatory.

And if you want to get access to the broader universe of community-uploaded pictures, subscribe, or use the Christmas season as an excuse to gift a subscription to your favorite diarist!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
