or you specify an address for the file’s location.
Uploading to the site works in this case because I don’t intend for this web part to be used
anywhere but this site, and it makes it easy to manage where the picture is and who can

You might not want to store the image for a web part in a local site library if you plan to import
the web part to a different site collection (where the users won’t have access to this site’s libraries)
or even a different web application. In that case, you should choose From Address in the Picture
drop-down menu. The pop-up box will require an address and alternative text. The address field
will accept addresses using http://, ftp://, file://, or the UNC \\ protocol. Make certain that
the location of the image file is available to all users who will be accessing the site.
