Today we published a rather beautiful protocol entitled: Crystallization of Cryptophane-A and Cryptophane-A Derivatives with and without Encapsulated Guests
It contains two figures both of which have been very elegantly incorporated into the main text, so I thought I would take this opportunity to show you how to achieve this.
1| Prepare your figure. In order for it to show as an image it has to be a jpeg, png or bitmap file. Unfortunately tif files will NOT show as images. If you want it to display nicely within the framed page, it should have a width of 560 pixels or less.
2| Assuming that you are in the process of sharing a protocol, upload your figure by going to the “Images and Attachments” page. Notice that both the Name (e.g. Figure 1) and the Title (Overall heading) are required fields.
3| Click on the link “How do I enter formatted text, symbols, links and images?”, and expand the section: "URLS for files uploaded via the “Images and Attachments” page.
4| Copy the link for the image that you are interested in inserting including the exclamation marks, and paste it into, for example, the Introduction.

If you wanted to insert the thumbnail with a link to the main figure (this would be a good idea if the main figure was wider than 560 pixels), then you could insert the following html into the text: <a href="http://url/for/the/fullsize/image"> <img src="http://url/for/the/thumbnail/image" > </a>
An example of a protocol where this has been done is: Aptamer-facilitated Protein Isolation from Cells
