Inserting image into IPython notebook markdown
I am starting to depend heavily on the IPython notebook app to develop and document algorithms. It is awesome; but there is something that seems like it should be possible, but I can't figure out how to do it:
I would like to insert a local image into my (local) IPython notebook markdown to aid in documenting an algorithm. I know enough to add something like
<img src="image.png"> to the markdown, but that is about as far as my knowledge goes. I assume I could put the image in the directory represented by 127.0.0.1:8888 (or some subdirectory) to be able to access it, but I can't figure out where that directory is. (I'm working on a mac.) So, is it possible to do what I'm trying to do without too much trouble?
Files inside the notebook dir are available under a "files/" url. So if it's in the base path, it would be
<img src="files/image.png">, and subdirs etc. are also available:
<img src="files/subdir/image.png">, etc.
Update: starting with IPython 2.0, the
files/ prefix is no longer needed (cf. release notes). So now the solution
<img src="image.png"> simply works as expected.
Most of the answers given so far go in the wrong direction, suggesting to load additional libraries and use the code instead of markup. In Ipython/Jupyter Notebooks it is very simple. Make sure the cell is indeed in markup and to display a image use:
![alt text](imagename.png "Title")
Further advantage compared to the other methods proposed is that you can display all common file formats including jpg, png, and gif (animations).

I am using ipython 2.0, so just two line.
from IPython.display import Image Image(filename='output1.png')
IPython/Jupyter now has support for an extension modules that can insert images via copy and paste or drag & drop.
The drag & drop extension seems to work in most browsers
But copy and paste only works in Chrome.
Getting an image into Jupyter NB is a much simpler operation than most people have alluded to here.
1) Simply create an empty Markdown cell. 2) Then drag-and-drop the image file into the empty Markdown cell.
The Markdown code that will insert the image then appears.
For example, a string shown highlighted in gray below will appear in the Jupyter cell:
3) Then execute the Markdown cell by hitting Shift-Enter. The Jupyter server will then insert the image, and the image will then appear.
I am running Jupyter notebook server is: 5.7.4 with Python 3.7.0 on Windows 7.
This is so simple !!
I put the IPython notebook in the same folder with the image. I use Windows. The image name is "phuong huong xac dinh.PNG".
<img src="phuong huong xac dinh.PNG">
from IPython.display import Image Image(filename='phuong huong xac dinh.PNG')
First make sure you are in markdown edit model in the ipython notebook cell
This is an alternative way to the method proposed by others
It also seems to work if the title is missing:
Note no quotations should be in the path. Not sure if this works for paths with white spaces though!
