Greetings and Salutations!

I couldn't sleep, so I thought I'd work on a quick, easy video explaining how to reference images from any HTML-based webpage, blog, article, or system! Absolutely it works with BellaOnline :) It takes under 30 seconds to get an article set up with an image, from starting the image FTP to finishing the article code! So it's absolutely a skill we aim for every editor to learn and master. What else in life only takes 30 seconds?

Since we all use different FTP programs, the video doesn't get into how to set up the FTP settings. Jeanne / resources@bellaonline.com can help you with that. She's worked with many of them and most are very straightforward. So the video assumes your FTP software is set up already with your username and password, so when you connect it gets into your account.

The video is under 4 minutes long so please watch it and give me feedback. Is there a specific tip I should mention? Is there a part that is less than clear? I provide the "image template code" in the description, since I'm not sure if it's visible in the video. I didn't think reading it out letter by letter would be optimal :). That code is


So for example for my low carb articles that template is:


All I have to do each time I load up a new image, let's say applepie.jpg, is to add the "applepie" in front of the ".jpg" in that template and it's all set. Easy peasy. All my low carb images live in that directory.

So here's the video, and thank you so much in advance for your help! Your tips will help out all editors here!
