Adding Images in WordPress
Using a visual element like an image or photo is a great way to spruce up your post or page content. Your WordPress site uses a media library to store all of your media like images and videos. From this box, you can choose to either upload a new file or use an existing file in from the media library. To upload an image, click the Select files button. Here you can change the Title , Caption , Alt text and Description. You can also choose the alignment of the image such as center, left or right , where the inserted image should link to, the actual URL of the image and the size of the image. Make sure the image has a checkbox and click the Insert into post button. If you click on this image, you should see two boxes appear in the upper lefthand corner of the image. The first is the image icon. Here you can change the size of the image based on percentages which can be a handy tool for resizing or you can update the title, alternative text, the caption and link URL.
