We recommend that you rename your images with a unique file name:

  • "chapter_12_3_4_figure_3.jpg" or
  • "dermatofibroma_fig_3.jpg", etc.

Adding images to dermoscopedia is a 2 step process:

Step 1 - Upload the images to the dermoscopedia file server

Step 2 - Inserting the file from the server into the text
