  1. Copy one of the images above to your computer.
    For Netscape on an Apple Macintosh, click on one of the images above and hold down the mouse button until a pop-up menu appears. For Netscape on a Windows machine, click on the image using the right mouse button until a pop-up menu appears. Then from the pop-up menu, select the option Save this Image as..., pick a folder where you want the image to be saved, and pick a filename for the image. Then click the Save button.
  2. Add the following code to the HTML files on your Web page:
    <A HREF="http://www.ogiek.org/"><IMG SRC="ogiek.gif" ALT="Ogiek.org" BORDER="0"></A>

    (Substitute the name of the image that you chose in step 1 for "ogiek.gif" in this code.)

    Remember to include the relative or absolute path with the filename if you store the image in a directory that differs from the HTML file to which you add this code. For example, if you want to add an Ogiek.org link to your home page at http://www.myhomepage.com/index.html and you want to store the Ogiek.org image in a subdirectory of your site called "images," located at http://www.myhomepage.com/images/, then add the following code to the file index.html:
    <A HREF="http://www.ogiek.org/"><IMG SRC="images/ogiek.gif" ALT="Ogiek.org" BORDER="0"></A>
  3. Upload the updated HTML files and the image to the server that stores your Web pages.
