confluence dashboard add image

HI all,

I am trying to customize our Confluence Dashboard (  and have it quite customized through editing global layout via the velocity template language.  Very html-like, but  the one area that slows me down right now is that I cannot figure how to add an image to the page.    Can anyone show me to how to do this?

(This is just one of many options but allows for a lot of felxability)
