Inserting Images

Engage your viewers with captivating images

Inserting images into a blog post is done by using the “Add Media” button on top of the toolbar.

WPAddMedia

This will open the Media Library for the site.

You can upload images from your computer to add them to the library, or add remote images by copying the URL for the image. If the remote image is moved, or removed, your link will break.

Commercial services such as Flickr can by inserted into a post by using the sharing URL for the image. The image will load at the size allowed by its creator.
