Step 3 – Mandatory: Inserting SINGLE Photos in your articles

You can insert single images/photos using WordPress’s own media tool. This would be good for news posts or article posts.

If you already have a photo gallery of a review product, and would like to select one of the photos from the gallery to insert as a single photo, please see Step 5 and Step 6.

  3. Select the size of the photo … I usually select Full Size (so remember to resize your photos to 1024×768 or 800×600 – to save bandwidth 😉
  4. Now you can Insert into post

 

Step 4 – Mandatory: Insert a Featured Image

wp_posting7

  1. On the bottom right of the editor, you’ll see Set Featured Image. Select it.
  2. A new Insert Media window will open (like step 3). Select the photo you want to use as the featured image.

 

Step 5 – Optional: Inserting Photo Gallery into your articles

If you have a photo gallery of a review product already, and would like to select one of the photos from the gallery to insert as a single photo … First, you need to create your gallery, see below.

We’ll be using the built-in WordPress Photo Gallery maker.

Click on the “Add Media” icon … 

  1. Click Create Gallery
  2. Select the photos you want to add to the gallery
  3. Click Create a new gallery

The next page will be shown below …

  1. Select the number of columns
  2. I recommend selecting Medium or Large (mostly I use Large)
  3. Now click Insert gallery

 

That’s it! But I hope this guide will help you post articles, reviews and blogs, as well as inserting photos and photo galleries with ease.
