Welcome back to Module 3 of the Basic CMS Training. In this video, we will walk you through images.
To add an image to your page or post, first, click the “Add Media” button. Here you have the options to choose an image from the Media Library, or upload one from your own device. We will talk more about the Media Library in the Advanced Training Module 2. Now, I will upload an image from my device by selecting “Select Files”.
My image has been uploaded, so now I will click “Insert to Page”.
Now you can make changes to the image settings by clicking on the image, then clicking “Edit”. Here you can add alternative text and a caption to the image. You can also align the image left, centre, right or none; and you can resize the image to thumbnail, medium, large, full size or custom size. You can also add a link to the image. Here, I will align my image centre, change the size to thumbnail, and add a link to the media file. Then, I click “Update”.
You can also edit the image itself. Click on the image to open the Image Details window, then click “Edit Original”. Here, you can rotate or flip your image, scale your image and crop it. I am going to rotate my image clockwise, and crop my image. Once you are done, click “Save”.
