Linux Mint 19.3

Emacs 26.3

Here is my org file:

* TODO Test insert image
  Test this
  #+CAPTION: This is the caption for the next figure link (or table)
  #+NAME:   Deepspace
* TODO Hello from this 

This org file is in the same folder as image KLOCKA6.JPG.

I want to show the image as an inline image in the org file.

I use the command org-toggle-inline-images but I get an error message:

No images to display inline 

How do I display the file as an inline image?

You need to provide a path: [[./KLOCKA6.JPG]], otherwise the link is not recognized as a file link. Alternatively, you can make sure that it is recognized as a file link if you write it explicitly as [[file:KLOCKA6.JPG]]. See External links.

  • Not show image inside org file. Now I get another message : openwith-file-handler: Opened KLOCKA6.JPG in external program. Aug 22, 2020 at 22:23

    That's a different problem: you should open another question for that problem and provide all relevant information.
