Upload an image to your WordPress blog or page

Images

Photos are a great way to enhance your WordPress.com blog, and adding and managing them is easy.

Uploading Images

You can upload the following image types to a post or page on your WordPress.com blog by using the Add an Image icon found within your visual editor:

  • .jpg/.jpeg
  • .gif
  • .png

Notes: Images should be saved in RGB mode, and you will see the best results if you use the sRGB color profile. Animated gifs will not display unless they are displayed at 100% full size. 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.

From Your Computer

  1. Go to Posts -> Add New – or go Pages -> Add New, or open an existing post in editing mode.
  2. Place your cursor where you would like the image to appear, and click on the Add an Image icon found in the Upload/Insert icon group directly above your editor.
    add-image-icon
  3. Click on the Select Files button and choose the image file from your computer.docs-select-files
  4. Once the uploading/crunching process has completed, you will be given the option to edit some settings before inserting the image into the post/page.image-post-settings3
  5. When finished choosing your image settings, click on the Insert into Post button.img-insert

From URL

The following process describes inserting an image which already exists on another web site or domain. This method will not upload the document/file to your blog’s Media Library. Because it is hosted elsewhere, if the file is removed from its location, the image will no longer work on your blog.

  2. Place your cursor where you would like the image to appear, and click on the Add an Image icon found in the Upload/Insert icon group directly above your editor.add-image-icon
  3. Click on the From URL tab                 docs-from-url
  4. You will be given the option to edit the settings defined above before inserting the image into the post/page.insert-img-url1
