If you are a new user, are you allowed to post images (where they are visible in the body)?

Or, are people just lazy?

@Videonauth has probably done 100s of "made image viable" edits.

  • As far as I remember you have to have a certain amount of reputation for posting images :)

    Well if I come across a post where the image isn't visible I make it visible in most cases.

The answer is "no, they can't."

Posting images and links are a privilege to help combat spam. See details here: https://askubuntu.com/help/privileges/new-user

    They can however post links to the images which another user can then edit and convert to images. I've done this for new users a few times. Commented Jun 27, 2016 at 0:03
