You can link to the graphic from your website where it is located, but
this tremendously slows your web page loading time.
The reason it slows loading time is because each time your web page
loads, it will have to search for the graphic online.
Also, if the site where your graphic is located becomes discontinued, or
if the site's server is down, your web page will not have
the graphic available any longer.
If you'll take a quick moment to save the graphic as a file on your hard
drive, you'll have the graphic for keeps, and won't have to
worry about delayed loading time.
