    For anyone who's interested, I did this:
    • From the browser view of my OneDrive files, I right clicked on the image, and selected "Embed"
    • Press the "Generate" button
    • Selected "Large" from the pic size dropdown (original size ended up stretched)
    • Selected "Include html tags"
    • Copied the html and then pasted it into the post editor in html view
    Done

    Yep, that's the only way I've managed to do it as well.
    Some folks like water, some folks like wine.
    My feedback thread is here.

    Thanks @Trude.

    We need to update all the pic hosting "how to" guides - so this will get included.  It's a bit cumbersome, but that's our fault rather than yours or OneDrive's.
    Having trouble posting images here?  This might help.

    @Trude - sorry, I just see a little blue square, and if I click on it I get a "Page not found" error - this using Chrome on a Chromebook.

    I'm guessing that the photo has been deleted from the OneDrive account, hence it disappearing from here.

    Yes, I probably removed that original test photo.
    The method I described still works though. Give it a try!
