Before creating the highlight, you'll need to consider whether you want to include an image in it.  If you do, you'll want to have the image ready and on hand before you start.  Please note that, for best results, the image should be at least 350 pixels wide.

This tutorial assumes that you will want to add an image linked to a resource.

Once you have any necessary media gathered, to create Highlight content just do the following:

Click on an image to make it bigger.
