Creating Stunning Posts with Beautiful Dividers


Credit: Dividers featured originally posted by @waldfee in this post


In a recent posts I commented on, the question of How to Save Images on Steemit arose and I thought I put it into a top post for more to see.

Works On All Common Operating Systems


Here is a quick how-to. These steps works on all webpages and most desktop operating systems such as Windows, Mac OSX, Linux etc.

It also works on mobile OS, such as iOS and Android, where a right click is usually achieved by pressing and holding a link until a context menu pops up.

Dividers - Examples


The examples used here are divider lines. Divider lines in markdown are usually achieved by 3 consecutive Asterisk *** , Underscores ___ or Hyphens --- placed in a separate line. It produces the nice grey divider line above and below.


Colorful Dividers


We can also beautify our post with image based dividers, such as this:


Code
<center>![](https://steemitimages.com/DQmQddJkLjrpSiVdZQzkZsXGfxttKQrimEFZ4obdGBrhiBa/image.png)</center>

or even animated gifs, such as this:

Code
<center>![Animated.colorful.divider.gif](https://steemitimages.com/DQmStjq9pMqP3jBBqStANerkvsfufKjewakCMCj3ZNohm3H/Animated.colorful.divider.gif)</center>

Image Size


Recommended image size is 1680 x 8 pixels. This gives appropriate divider dimension and is automatically scaled to any resolution or text field.

How to Insert Into Post


These colorful dividers are inserted just like any other picture/image. Make sure it's centered by enclosing the image divider in <center> image here </center>.

Image links from the internet can be used. Images can also be copy/pasted, and dragged from your local storage directly into the post.

How to get them into my machine?

Saving Images


Saving is as easy as 1-2-3. A little preparation is advisable.

  1. Create a dedicated folder on your local machine, such as /Images/Steemit/Sundries/.
  2. Right click on the image and save as in the location prepared in step 1.

These images can now be manipulated in color, shape, size any way you choose, using your favorite image editor.



One last word:

Do not use the divider as your first image in the post, or your thumbnail will look something like this: 😂


And voilà - You joined the Pros!

Engjoy & Happy Weekend!

THANK you for reading @bryanoemar! 😎

Really big thanks to you @globocop I was about to make a post asking the community on how to add image to a comment. I face this problem a number of time but wasn't able to get the answer. So today i get it. Another thing can be really interesting for us (the one who aren't use to computer syntax) is to make a kind of tutorial or even an article like this one on how to use the markdown. Anyway thousands thanks ^ and follow

Hello @ricko66

Ask and We Shall Be Given 🙏


MarkDown Guides

Fortunately, there are already excellent guides out there. I recommend two in particular:
by @xeldal How to Liven up your Steem Posts with Markdown and
by @scrooger Formatting and Editing Your Blog.

Ask Steem

Another useful tool is the Steemit Search Engine AskSteem.com and it's recent cousin www.asksteem.com/userexplorer.

Happy Sunday

Very cool i'll have to try something like this out.
I just started using an image as a signature at the end of my posts as well, dividers could add that little extra something to peoples posts especially if they are elegant and minimal.

Nice post @globocop
