Place an image in an article

When uploading an article,  the process of adding images is made simple with the WordPress Media Uploader tool. Follow these step-by-step instructions to add an image:

In order to add an image to your page or post (article), you must first put your cursor in the place in the text where you want the image to appear. By placing your cursor within your text, you can add images in line with your content. You can also place your cursor on a blank line if you want the image to appear by itself instead.

Tip: It’s a good idea to place your cursor on the left margin of your text, even if you want the image to appear on the right. That’s because there is a special setting called Alignment that allows you to control whether the image appears on the right or the left side of the text. It even controls how text flows around the image automatically.


Newer visions of WordPress may show a slightly different window such as the one below:

You can add or select the image you want to add to your page or post by choosing from either of the following options in the center of the media uploader window:

  • Upload Files: Upload the image you want to use from your computer by dragging it into the upload area.
  • Media Library: Select from any previously uploaded images in the media library by clicking on the one you wish to add to your page or post (article).

Once you have selected or uploaded the image you want to add, you will see a checkbox next to the thumbnail confirming your selection and see information about it displayed in the Attachment Details window on the right-hand side of the media uploader contact.

Attachment Details window presents a small, uncropped thumbnail of the image, along with important details like the filename, upload date, and image dimensions in pixels.

You will find action links that allow you to perform the following actions:

  1. Edit Image: Clicking this link will take you to the image editing page.
  2. Delete Permanently: Use this link to remove the image from your website permanently.

You can modify the following media information:

  1. Title: This refers to the title of the media.
  2. Caption: Enter the caption for the image, which will be shown below the image itself.
  3. Alternate Text: Provide Alt text for the image, such as “The Mona Lisa,” to describe the media.
  4. Description: Add a description for this particular media.
