Adding an image

To add an image, it will be enough to use the Img tag with the width and height attributes to specify the image size and the src attribute to specify the image path.

The values of image length and height are 740x380 and 840x420 for FullHD and 2K monitors respectively.

To use your images, you have 2 options:

Option 1

Copy your images inside the static folder of your skin.

C:\Program Files\NETProjects\Gizmo Server\skins\Next\static and use the path https://static/fileName.

<html>
<body>
<img width="740" height="380" src="https://static/eva.jpg">
</body>
</html>

Option 2

Upload the image to a free image hosting service such as https://postimages.org/, and then use the direct link provided.

<img width="740" height="380" src="https://3dnews.ru/assets/external/illustrations/2023/03/22/1083857/0.jpg">

Adding Youtube videos

To add a Youtube video, just copy the link to it from the browser address bar and paste it into the Media URL field
