Add an image to a block

How do we add an image to a custom defined, textual block?

You can change menus here:

Edit the custom block in question, at a URL like:

Add the image using Create Content -> Image and upload it from your file system. As we are using a public file system, left it unpublished and not in any photo galleries. Copied the path "Copy Image Location" on left (or control) click in Firefox.

A graphic can also be attached to a page or any content as a file, and not listed but accessible (for public download) if available.

Then use the path in the block content (you may need to set the input format to full HTML), in a standard <img src="/sites/default/files/images/agaric_image.jpg" />.
