Exposing a document for external usage

sometimes you need to expose an image that you have to be available on site pages or autoresponders.  Salesforce makes it easy to upload and expose documents.

Go to Documents in Salesforce

Go to Documents in Salesforce

Click New

Give it a name and check the Externally Available Checkbox

Then Right Click the preview image
