You also have the option of making the links open in a new window.

To find the relevant page or post if you have a lot of content just type a keyword into the search box. In this case we used Google as the keyword to bring up all pages or posts we have created about Google.

Add Photos to your WordPress website.

To add a new photograph or any image to your web page click on the add media button and a window will open allowing you to choose from any item in the media library.

If you wish to upload a new image to WordPress do the following:

Using Windows Explorer or whatever program you use to manage files on your computer, navigate to the folder on your local PC where you keep your images then simply drag and drop into your web browser.

For the best user experience, If you are placing an image to the right of your text, I find that as a rule of thumb try to keep your images to around 450 pixels wide with a resolution of 72 Dpi.

Make sure that you optimise your images for the web before uploading them, while WordPress does try to optimise images for you, you will be able to do a much better job yourself using your favourite imaging program such as Photoshop.upload-wordpress-image
