Please give your image a title – very helpful for searches. If it’s named DSC_2345 no one will be able to find it through a search.

Select left if you want text to wrap around our image.

Select the size you want image to be shown. Medium is usually fine. Don’t insert images wider than 800 pixels into the post. You can link to the original image if you want to provide users with access to the giant file.

Click Insert into Post when you’re done adjusting the image’s settings.

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.
