Adding an Image to Page Text

*Note: Before adding photos to your site, be sure they are resized to no more that 600 pixels wide. This will ensure that your site loads quickly and that the photos are easy to manipulate in the CMS. The easiest way to resize a photo is: http://www.picresize.com/. Browse for and upload your photo and click "continue". Choose "resize" and if one of the percentages sizes is still too large, choose "custom size.." and enter the number 600 in the box asking for width. Save as a .PNG file (this type of file looks better on the web) and then click "I'm done, re-size my picture." When the new page opens, click on the "Save to disk" and it will download to your computer. Download printable instructions for using PicResize.com.
