(Intended for people who do NOT have their own website to host a banner.)
Step 1. When you receive the banner in your email, right-click on it and save it
to your desktop (or somewhere you will be sure to find it again).
Step 2. Now get the web address you want the banner to go to when clicked. Copy and
paste it into your texteditor for later use. Step 3. Go to: http://www.photobucket.com Photobucket currently offers FREE image hosting and allows direct linking. (Please
consider making a donation if you use their services. It is VERY difficult to find
reliable FREE image hosting, so the more donations they get the more likely their
services will be continued.) Register for a free account (top right side). You'll
receive a confirmation email with a link to complete registration. Step 4.
Go to your email account, find the Photobucket confirmation email and click the link
in the message. It'll take you to the confirmation page; click the link that contains
your Photobucket username. Now log in. Step 5. Click on the button with 'Browse...'.
A new window will open; find the banner on your desktop and upload. Then hit the
submit button on the Photobucket page. Step 6. Now you should see below a tiny
picture of the banner you just uploaded and three boxes with code. Highlight the
code in the upper box, copy and paste it in your texteditor, right below the web
address you put there earlier so it looks like this:
