Images

embedding images (e.g. gel or microscopy images) in your notebook is simpler than ever.

  1. Edit the notes page where you want to insert the picture
  2. Click the "Select files" icon (arrow)
  3. Click "Upload file"
  4. Click "Insert as image"

These steps will upload the file and insert the following code in your page:

To modify the width, you can adjust this code e.g.

[[File:my_image.JPG|400px]]
