  2. Click each picture and set it to High, Medium, or Low, and then click the Save button. This part is optional.
  3. If you also want to place URLs for each banner, enter the URLs in the Linked to text box and then save it. This will determine the location where you want your visitors to be redirected when they click the image. However, if you think it’s unnecessary, just skip this step instead.
