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:

  1. Upload the images to the dermoscopedia file server
  2. Inserting the file from the server into the text

You now have 2 choices:

→ for all figures, illustrations and dermoscopic images
