Discover the Simple Magic of WordPress Image Management
If you’re looking for a platform that offers both simplicity and power in more or less equal measure, WordPress is definitely worth considering. This management system makes creating, publishing, and managing your website content an absolute breeze, especially when it comes to adding images.
Step One: Get Logged In
If you’re new to WordPress, don’t worry—the process of adding images to your content could hardly be easier. To get started, simply log in to your WordPress site with your username and password to access the dashboard of your site.
Step Two: Choose What to Edit
Next up, you’ll need to select the page or post where you’d like to add your chosen image. Just head to the ‘posts’ section for your blog posts or ‘pages’ for your static pages, select the one you want, and click ‘Edit’ to enter the editing window for that post or page.
Step Three: Add Your Image
Click where you’d like to see the image appear within your post or page, usually in the body of the text between paragraphs. Once you’ve placed your cursor in the right spot, select the ‘Add Media’ button above the editing window to upload your image.
Step Four: Upload Your Image
There are two ways to add images in WordPress. You can upload an image from your computer or via a URL. To upload directly from your computer, just click the ‘Upload Files’ tab. Alternatively, head to the ‘Media Library’ tab to select the ‘Insert from URL’ button, enter the URL of the image you want to add, then select ‘Insert into Post’.
Step Five: Customize Your Image
Once your image is uploaded, you can customize it to your heart’s content. Add a title, caption, description, and alt text to improve search engine optimization. You can also choose the alignment of the image as well as whether it should appear thumbnail or full-size.
Step Six: Insert Your Image
Now that your image is all set to go, click ‘Insert into Post’. The image will appear within your post or page, and you can hit the preview button to see how it looks before publishing.
Step Seven: Publish Your Post/Page
And finally, you’re ready to hit ‘Publish’ to make your post or page live, and share your stunning new image with the world. Congratulations!
