They say a picture says a thousand words, which is why it’s important for you to be able to quickly and easily upload images and media to WordPress.  WordPress has the tool for managing the media files and folder, in which you can easily upload, organize and manage the media files on your website.

Uploading media (pictures/images) files

To upload any images or media, click the ‘Media’ tab in the left sidebar of the WordPress dashboard. Click the ‘Add New’ button at the top of the page to add media files.

Once clicked, a panel will appear below the ‘Add New’ button. Click the ‘Select files’ button to open the file uploader and open the corresponding media file/s to be uploaded. You can also simply drag and drop your media into the uploader to add it to your website.

Editing media information/details

By clicking the selected media thumbnail, you can also add/edit alt text, captions, titles and description of your uploaded media file.
