There is a lot of info around about how to do this, but tracking it down can be hard. So, as I’ve been asked quite a few times in the last few days about how to do this, I thought I would try and gather mine, and others’ info together.
The idea of featuring other Bubblers was kicked off as an idea by "Paul Louis Villani ":http://www.redbubble.com/people/pvillani/journa... respect to Paul.
the way to do it is as follows:
There are some little bits of ‘code’ that you need to use and put into the description box. I’ll use THE PALM HOUSE PAGE as an example.
Part 1a – the bit of text – Do check out Kara Rasmanis’ great portfolio
NOTE: this text can be whatever you want it to be.
Part 2a – the web address of the page you want to link to using this text – http://www.redbubble.com/people/kvalle
NOTE: this is the public view web address of the person
Part 3a – web address of the person’s I.D. picture – http://images-0.redbubble.com/rbimages/overview...
NOTE: to get this, go to the public page of the person, right-click their I.D. photo, left-click properties, and then you can left-click-hold and highlight the actual web address of their I.D. photo and COPY it and the PASTE it.
Part 4a – and finally, if you want to make the picture a clickable link as well, which is nice, you repeat the web address of the page you want to link to – http://www.redbubble.com/people/kvalle
joining it all together
You don’t use conventional HTML tags to make it all work. Instead you use DOUBLE SPEECH MARKS, COLONS and EXCLAMATION MARKS and – importantly – NO SPACES anywhere.
important: I have to use spaces to let you see what is going on
Part 1b – DOUBLE SPEECH MARKS Do check out Kara Rasmanis’ great portfolio DOUBLE SPEECH MARKS COLON
Part 2b – right after the COLON – http://www.redbubble.com/people/kvalle
NOTE: this turns the text into a clickable link (if you only want a text link, you need do no more)
NOTE: for the adventurous, you can press ENTER-SPACE-ENTER at this point and it will make a blank line between the test link and the picture, which looks nicer. If you are not adventurous, don’t worry.
Part 3b – EXCLAMATION MARK http://images-0.redbubble.com/rbimages/overview... EXCLAMATION MARK
NOTE: this puts the picture in place on the page.
Part 4b – and finally, add another COLON to make the picture clickable – COLON http://www.redbubble.com/people/kvalle
Voila – it all looks like this and it is this that you put into the description box
It should result in something like this
And the adventurous version…..
You do it exactly the same, using 1b & 2b, for a clickable link, in comment boxes, or in Bubblemails.
You can just use 3b on its own for inserting a picture
Use 3b + 4b to make that picture clickable

hope this helps. Any questions, do ask.
