A GIMP Image for My IBO Front Page

IBO Toolbox V2.0 has opened up some great tools and opportunities for us. For the first time, we have the chance to create our own IBOsocial Front Page. If you have not looked into this yet, you will want to do so at your earliest opportunity.

The editor is the same as the one that we are currently using for our IBO Press Release Publishing. In fact, if you do something that you like, you can copy the source code from your Press Release and paste it right into the code for your IBOsocial Front Page. That is what I did first thing this morning with the closing from my most recent Press Release. I will explain in more detail toward the end of this Press Release.

Although the “Image” button has disappeared from the publisher, it is fairly easy to add images. Even if you do not understand HTML, once you have an Idea of what to copy and paste, you will find it easy to proceed.

A few days ago, while experimenting with this new editor, I created some simple text as an introduction to my IBOsocial pages. Today, I created an Image with the *Free GIMP Tool to take the place of that text. If you need help with GIMP, I have listed my GIMP PRs at

Pronounced NOva-NOga.
Short for
NOthing VEntured – NOthing GAined
Say it Loud. Say it Proud.

Using the *Free GIMP Tool, I created a new image, taking care to save it to my project directory. The next step is to Upload it to All I needed to do was Login to my *Free ImgBox account and drag my new image onto the page. Then I chose the Content type (Family Safe or Not); accepted the Thumbnail Size; and chose to add it to my Existing Nove-Noga Gallery. Then I simply clicked the [Start Upload] button and let them do the rest.

I copied my Image Link and placed it in a text file for reference.
IBOsocial 500x300

I also copied the HTML-code provided by ImgBox. Their HTML-code is in the proper format, requiring some minor adjustments. The Anchor is pointed at the image at ImgBox. Replace that with your target as I have set mine for The image “src” in the ImgBox HTML-code is the JPG thumbnail address. Replace it with the Image Link from ImgBox. I recommend adding a “title” tag after the “alt” tag. This is for the message that displays when the mouse is over your image. You will also need to add the dimension tags so that the image will display properly.

Href target with my target.
Img src with the Img Link:

Added img src tags:
title="Visit - Image Hosted at" 

Now that we have prepared our new Image, the next step is to add it to our IBOsocial Front Page. Under SITE NAVIGATION select EDIT PROFILE. Scroll down to Step 4 for the IBOsocial Front Page.

If you have not made any changes yet, I recommend that you select the existing text and find the Justify button on the editing frame. Choose Justify – Centered to center the text. At the bottom of the frame the [<>] button will display the html source code.

Copy and paste your new image statement inside the paragraph “p” tags. The result should be your new image centered in the work space. Do not be tempted to use a larger image. 500 pixels seems to be very near the maximum width. Click on the “Preview” button to see what it looks like. It may take a few seconds for the new image to appear. 

If everything looks correct, simply click the [SAVE] button. These same techniques can be used to add clickable images to our Press Releases. This may be common information to many people but there are always people just like myself, who need a little help figuring out the ways to make the new tools work. That is part of why I created the Nove-Noga site. I figured if I had so much trouble finding reliable information that I would not be alone in needing it.
