How to Add an Image to Your Post or Page

1. While editing or creating a post/page, place your cursor on the area where you want to insert the image (picture) then click on the “Media icon” above your post/page editor:

2. A pop-up box will appear. You can either drag and drop your image into the box or upload it using the “Select Files” folder.

Note that the drag and drop uploader only works in browsers with HTML5 upload support such as the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. Other browsers will still show the “Select Files” button or the basic browser uploader form.

3. Once the uploading/crunching process has completed, you will be given the option to edit some settings before inserting the image into the post/page.
