Add images to readme.md on GitHub

Recently I joined GitHub. I hosted some projects there.

I need to include some images in my README File. I don't know how to do that.

I searched about this, but all I got was some links which tell me to "host images on web and specify the image path in README.md file".

Is there any way to do this without hosting the images on web?

Answer Source

Try this markdown:

![alt tag](http://url/to/img.png)

I think you can link directly to the raw version of an image if it's stored in your repository. i.e.

![alt tag](https://raw.githubusercontent.com/username/projectname/branch/path/to/img.png)

Edit: just noticed comment linking to article which suggests using gh-pages. Also, relative links can be a better idea than the absolute URLs I posted above.
