  3. General: Align cursor where you want the image placed.
  4. Select the "Insert" or "Insert Image".

  6. Be sure to upload this image to your web server so the image will show. Web browsers link to this image for displaying.
  7. Add alternative or "alt" text for any image on your web pages. "ALT" text makes information about the image available to visually-impaired users. Follow directions for ALT for your web editor or add alt="Maine Readers' Choice Award" within the image tag of the HTML code. To use the logo as a link, choose the image and follow the directions of your web editor for adding a link. Usually there is a box "link" to add the web address - http://mainereaderschoiceaward.org/ - right below where you choose to add the image.
