3. Your WordPress site uses a media library to store all of your media like images and videos. From this box, you can choose to either upload a new file or use an existing file from the media library. To upload an image, click the Select files button. Find the image you have to use and click open.

4. Now your image has been uploaded, you will see that it has been added to the media library. On the right side of this box, you will see the attachment details for this page. Here you can change the Title, Caption, Alt text and Description. You can also choose the alignment of the image, where the inserted image should link to, the actual URL of the image and the size of the image.

5. Make sure the image has a checkbox on top right corner and click the Insert into post button and you will see your image has been added to your post.

7. By following the process you can add any number of images in you posts. Again click on Add Media button and follow the same process.

The featured image of the post is sometimes used by your WordPress theme. Featured images are mostly displayed as the main image of the post. Go ahead and choose this image as our featured image and return back to the post editor. Now, you can preview the post and see that our image has been added.
