What is the best way to use external pictures in the Wiki?
I have written a getting started article for Pinetime with a lot of Picture links from the Internet.

When I see the Wiki-Help it seems that you need to upload all the pictures and only then you can show them inline?
The pictures are not mine and although I am happy to link to them I don't know if we can just copy them?

Is there a way to show external pictures in the Wiki text ?

Good question! I always upload images. I think that end-users can also upload images at will, as long as the images are under 2MB if I remember correctly.
Indeed, @fire219 may know better than I what is the best / correct way to link or embed imgur etc., pictures into a wiki page.
Also, great job!

It looks like a setting to allow hotlinked images could be enabled, but I'm not convinced it's a great idea -- the wiki for the Wikimedia software has explanations for that.

It's also usually not good wiki etiquette to fill a page full of tons of pictures. You could upload the pictures that are most important to our wiki, or just use normal text links to those pictures.
