  2. Within Available Steps, locate the Post step and drag it into your lineup.* 
  3. Select "Image" from the templates, then scroll down to the Image header and click on the blue Select button.
  4. A content window will pop up and filter using COVID19 tag. 
  5. Six CDC health images will appear - click on the "Shuffle all 6 filter results" button and then click the blue Select button. 
  6. Give your Step a Name (for internal use) and click Save. Note: You do not need to add a Caption. 

*If you have many steps in your lineup, you may want to display this multiple times in your lineup. There is no limit to reusing available steps, so add as many as you need!
