I was wondering how i could convert a JPEG file that i made using GIMP to a URL address. I need to do this so i can use it for my banner. I dont have a subscription to GP.

Hi there, you don't need to subscribe to GP in order to add a banner. It's not feasible to convert a JPEG to a URL using Gimp. I think what you want to do is to upload your JPEG to an image host website, then use that URL address to add your banner. You can use image hosting sites such as photobucket or imageshack

1. Have an image in RGB format, not CYMK.

2. Use a hosting site. For example you can try ImageShack
3. Upload your image by selecting Browse...
4. Then select host it.

5. There will be several links. Use the one that says Direct link to image.

Once you have the direct link to image, copy it and paste it to your banner field.
