How to upload images in WordPress
Now that you’ve kick started your website, you’ll want to give some life to it. Uploading images is a great way to add character to your website. Uploading images is very simple, select Add an Image icon found within your visual editor in the blog section of WordPress. You can upload .jpg/.jpeg, .gif, or .png files.
Wordpress.com recommends, “Images should be saved in RGB mode, and you will see the best results if you use the sRGB color profile. Animated gifs will not display unless they are displayed at 100% full size. To only upload an image to your blog’s Media Library (and not attach it to a specific post/page), use Media -> Add New in your dashboard.”
From Your Computer
Go to Posts select “Add New, Pages” then select “Add New”, or open an existing post in editing mode. Put your cursor where you would like the image to appear, and select on the Add an Image icon found in the Upload/Insert icon group directly above your editor.
Click on the Select Files icon and choose the image file you want from your computer.
When you finished uploading the image you want; you will be given the option to edit some settings before inserting the image into the post/page.
