Reference to file in folder


Starting point:
A screenshot should be inserted into a field named: “Conjugation table”.
Since the same table is to be used several times in different records in the deck, I only want to enter the reference to the image, for example:“tener.gif”.
Storage location:
" … Roaming\Anki2\Pedro_01\"

what should the syntax be?

Additional question:
What file format would you recommend for the screenshot using Anki?
(gif has the smallest file size.)

Thank you, Peter

<img src="name.format">

I don’t see much difference between .jpg, .png and .gif if it’s for general use. .Gif also supports animations and that’s why people usually use it.

Dear Casartelli,

Thanks for your fast answer.

I tried different syntax, even your one before, but non works.

as you can see: the file exist:

I use Anki version: 2.1.49 on Windows 10

If I copy the img directly in the field the img is shown.


You need to use the HTML editor for that.
Ctrl + Shift + X or click on anki_75RNVgzNZB in the toolbar.

thanks, now it works!

Sorry to bother you, but I’ve no clue about HTML

Instead of writing the HTML directly, you can also just drag & drop the image into editor, and Anki will figure out it’s already in your folder and doesn’t duplicate the file.

That’s what I did at the beginning.

I now have over 180 tables with irregular verbs or other hints.
Instead of searching in the folder, I prefer to type in the name of the file so that I don’t have to keep searching for the corresponding file in the media folder.

Thanks, Peter
