How to Add Images to Posts or Pages in WordPress


When creating or editing a WordPress page or blog post, you can easily add images at any time using the WordPress Media Uploader tool.

Step 1. Place your cursor where you would like the image to appear, and click on the Add Media icon.

Step 2. You can add or select the image you want to add to your page or post by choosing from either of the following options in the center of the media uploader window:

  • Upload Files: Upload the image you want to use from your computer by dragging it into the upload area.
  • Media Library: Select from any previously uploaded images in the media library by clicking on the one you wish to add to your page or post.

Step 3. When finished choosing your image, click Insert into post at the bottom.

After the image uploader window closes, you will see the image in the text editor window.

At any time, you can edit the image settings by clicking on the Edit Image button in the upper left hand corner.
You can remove the image from your page/post by clicking on the Remove Image button.
