A quick and easy guide on how to add pictures to WordPress.
Hi everybody, this is super easy. I will outline each step, and you will have your pictures loaded up in a snap, no worries.
1.) First Log-in to your WordPress admin area. It will look pretty much look like the picture below, only with your website’s information.
2.) In the left column click “Media“. When you click “Media“, it takes you to your media library.
You will notice I have a couple of pictures in the Media Library already, (picture below). We will add another one. This is the area where you up-load pictures, music, video’s, or even documents. In this example we will add a picture, since we are talking about adding pictures to WordPress… LOL.
3.) Notice I yellowed in “Add New” above, you will be clicking that next. When you click “Add New“ you come to the screen that will allow you to browse your computer’s folders/files for the pictures you are wanting to upload to WordPress.
4.) Click “Select Files” I yellowed it in for better visibility. After clicking “Select Files” a window that lets you browse your computers folders, opens up to allow you to upload whatever media you are looking. If anything is tricky this would be it. You have to find the correct folder on your computer, where you saved the pictures you want for WordPress.
5.) Final step..
You can see in the picture above that I have a folder open, (on my computer), with some pictures. When you see the one you want on your computer, just select it with a single click, and then click “Open”, or double click it. Either way this action uploads the picture you selected, in to your WordPress library. I clicked/selected the happy face thumbs up, and clicked open.. actually I just double clicked it!
As you can see in this picture the thumbs up picture is now in my WordPress media library.
Congrats, you did it!! Told you it was super easy, you just successfully up-loaded pictures to your WordPress Media Library. You can now add them to various posts and pages that you desire. Want to learn how to add pictures onto your WordPress website? Just click the happy guy below.
