Here is an example with the code used: (extra spaces before and between "greater thans" so it would not execute, Do not use them like that in actual use.)

You will have to host the image somewhere. I placed my example code as a code block by putting two spaces before it so it would not actually load the image in this example.

If someone posts a question with a link like and I want to edit the question to embed the image I get
and that looks really ugly. Is there anything I can do besides re-uploading the image?

@Daniel: You can download the image, crop it with the IPT or even in pure Matlab, save it a tinypic again and change the link in the original question. Well, of course the OP could do this also.
Finally I write this only to confirm, that this is a losing battle. Sigh.
I embedded that _exact_ preview, in a Question a day or so, and had no difficulty with it being off the right hand side.
@Walter, you tried to embed the "exact preview" but you didn't. The question is here:
Basically there are two images: and You embedded the 2u95qwg image twice. If I embed that image it works for me also. The 14bib77 image does not work.
