In the Image Settings,menu you can choose the image to upload into the email. Click the blue Choose Image button to produce the Image Uploader pop-up where you can search throughyour files and choose the image you wish to upload.
Once an image is chosen, more options will appear in the Image Settings section, including a Link field, which lets you add a hyperlink to the image, directing those who click on the image to a web address of your choosing. Click on the textbox in this field and type in the URL of the site to associate with this image.
