It’s easiest to add these using the “Write” button from the top right WP menu. You’ll see the graphic editor menu that lets you bold-face your post, or do other things. The button to add media is the plus symbol inside a circle.

Click on the plus symbol (or the small triangle to its right) to bring up the sub-menu to insert media.

You can choose from existing images by clicking on that image and clicking on the Insert button in the bottom right corner of the pop up window.

  • You can insert media from URLs too.
  • You can upload an image to the media library by selecting that option.

Once the image is uploaded you can insert it, or if you have added multiple images and want to share them as 2-up side-by-side images, or as a slideshow, you can click on the Edit tab of the pop up window and make your choices there.

If you want to add an image from the quick posting view you can as well, but you’re looking for a different icon. First, to see the option to add a title you need to click on the small square-ish “hamburger” button in the mini post menu (highlighted by the right ‘click’). To add an image you’ll need to click on the small square button that’s half white and black to access the media menus.
