  3. If you wish to add more “Detail view fields”, click the “Add new field” button at the bottom.
  4. When finished with the Data view settings, click on the blue “Save and Close” button.

    3. Click “Upload new file” and choose an image file from the images on your computer or mobile device. 
    4. When the image is finished loading, click on it.
    5. Copy the URL listed.
