Add Photos to your Wordpress site
Navigate to [ http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin ]
(Type in your businesses website domain in place of www.yourdomain.com)
Login: [ Username ]
Password: [ your Password ]
Click on the “Post” or “Pages” where you want to add photos to..
(the following instructions apply to both)
To add a photo to your “Post” or “Page”:
Click on the Photo icon next to “Upload/Insert”
- “Add an Image” window will pop up, click on “Gallery” at the top
- You will see a listing of photos you have uploaded previously, click "Show" next to the photo you want to add to the Page. (You will have to insert each photo seperately)
You can type in the “Caption” - which will show up underneath the photo, be sure to specific the:
- Alignment: None, Left, Center or Right – We recommend if you are going to have content you are typing in the body of the Page, go for a Left or Right alignment. But if you will just have photos choose either None or Center.
- Size: Thumbnail, Medium, Large, Full Size – We recommend if you are going to have content along with your photos in the body of the Page, go for a Thumbnail or Medium size. But if you will just have photos choose Medium or Large, Full Size can be too large for the space you have to work with for your website.
Note: the dimensions underneath some photos may read: Full Size (3264 x 2448) -- anything larger than 700 in width is too large for your website. But, you can go back in after adding a photo that's too large and shrink it down to size (I will demonstrate that below).
Click “Insert to Post” when you are ready.
Notice the image is now in the body of your post/page.
You can move the image around in the page if need be.
Click on the photo in the body of the Page, you will see two icons hover on the left hand corner of the photo – the Photo icon is how you can edit the photo and the other is to Delete the photo.
Click on the
You can toggle the percentage of the size of the photo and change the alignment and the caption
To bring the size down just go lower in percentage to decrease the size.
Note: Any photos you upload from a previous session are still saved in the Gallery – this illiminates the double-uploading of photos.
To view the page simply go to [ your URL ]
Note: if you are still logged into Wordpress you will see “Edit this page” at the bottom of your pages and posts. This will also make it easier to navigate through which pages you want to edit.
