With WordPress you can add a wide variety of media to your posts, you can add images, photos, videos and music to your posts very easily. In this article I will show you how to add images to your WordPress posts.
How to add images to posts
Please create a new post or open a post that you have previously made. Click on the text where you want to add the content of the image or other media and click on the button Add Media at the top left of your editor menu. In this example I’m going to insert an image and place the image before the main paragraph.
The WordPress Insert Media pop-up will appear. Click the button Select file to grab your file on your computer, or you can also drag your image and drop it in that area, it will be uploaded automatically.
After selecting a local file, WordPress will upload and refresh the page depending on the file format. For the purpose of this tutorial we will add an image to the post. For pictures there are two things you have to do. First, give the image a description – and also don’t forget to fill in the Alt tag as this will be good for Image SEO, and also the title. If you fill in the Captions, the caption will appear below the image in your post.
Once you have done that, you need to specify the Attach image settings:
- Alignment : How to position images in your content. This depends on the theme you are using as well.
- Link to: Choose where to link the image if the click will lead to where, but for this setting I recommend selecting none.
- Size : When you upload an image, WordPress creates multiple copies of the image in various sizes. Choose whether you want a thumbnail, medium sized image or full image added to your post.
After you have entered the information for your image and chosen a way to visualize it in your post, click the Insert to post button. You will see the image added to your editor window.
Now you can update your posts and look to the front of your site and see the results. You will see the newly added image added to your post.
In the same way as above, you can also add music and videos to your posts. Here is a wordpress tutorial on how to add images to wordpress posts, I hope this article is helpful and useful for you. 🙂
