Okay so in this short video I’m going to show you how to add pictures to your blog post and pages in WordPress, alright let’s get started. Okay so we’re returning and we’re continuing on creating our blog post and we’re going to add some pictures to the basic blog post. So in order to do that I’m going to find a picture or a section of my content that I want to add this picture. So let’s see here, my designs review, let’s see…ah! My logo design winner, so I’m going to go ahead and paste that right here.

I’m going to find a nice spot and the content add that. You’ll want to do is add media, and you’ll want to be able to upload a file. Sp, let’s say you don’t have a picture already in your media, you can go ahead and upload it to your computer. So click ‘UPLOAD FILES’ and you’re going to select a file from your computer. So I’ll be right back, I’m going to go ahead and find that image. Okay so now that I’ve found my image I’m going to go ahead and click on that and as you can see, it’s being uploaded. Now there’s a couple of things you can do right here while the file is being uploaded.

You can change the title and the alternate text and give it a title. I’m just going to go with 99 Designs Review Logo Winner. Okay! You can change the alignment, so let’s say you want the picture to be centered, left, on the right, it’s up to you. I’m going to center mine and I’m going to leave the size, I’m going to give it the full size at 610 by 516 and I’m going to ‘INSERT INTO POST’. Click on that. So as you can see now the image is inside my blog post, it looks great! I’m going to go ahead and save this draft. And then I’m going to ‘PREVIEW’ it. So let’s scroll down and take a look at our new image we just installed. So there you go! Look at that it’s beautiful! It’s right in the content, it’s nice and centered, inside and that’s how you add an image to your blog post. 🙂
