  7. Click the “Add Image” button and navigate to the location of the 400×400 image on your computer. Select it and upload it.
  8. Add the URL of the event you wish the image to be linked to. This will be of the form: where NNNNN is the event number you found in the earlier step. Don’t omit the pound sign — the link won’t work without it.
