How to upload & insert images to a post or page

The past couple weeks i have been searching around the Interweb, and found many people have problems uploading and inserting images into their WordPress posts/pages.

So I have put together this quick guide on how to do just that!

There are 2 ways of doing this:

  1. In WordPress there is the “Media” Library that allows you to upload images to your blog, then use the link provided to add it to a page/post or anywhere else on your site.
  2. The second way is to upload/insert it directly from the post or page you are creating using the menu option shown on the page and post interface.

So here is the quick guide on each method on how to upload and insert images onto posts or pages of your blog

Post – Page Insert/Upload Menu Button:

Step 1: Make sure you are on the visual editor tab while creating your post/page.

Step 2: Find the “Upload/Insert” menu bar area on your post screen – http://screencast.com/t/oSygM2CD

Step 3: Press the “Add an image” Button, and select the image you want to upload/insert – http://screencast.com/t/s39Ns6sgqN1http://screencast.com/t/taz9ODn6ubuP

Step 4: Once you have selected your image, you can then adjust the settings for that image(title, caption, size,alignment options), then click “Insert into post” – http://screencast.com/t/rbdMcMsSpUe
