Why my SlideShare posts needed repair
I changed web hosts. That meant that the URLs of each page were different. So, none of the links from my SlideShare presentations to my web pages worked. This pages describes a fast way of making the repairs so that all of the hyperlinks would work.

3. Use Cmd+ to make the images as large as possible.
4. Use Skitch to make a new picture of each slide.
5. Give each picture a descriptive name. In my case I began by typing PhotoEditorX slide into Skitch export panel.
