Uploading Media and Adding Images in Divi

Uploading Media and Adding Images in Divi

New pages and blog posts can be enriched with images and media. Before new media can be embedded, it must be uploaded to WordPress. After logging in to your site, click on Media in the sidebar.

Your Media section will look similar to this example below, except your media will appear in place of the placeholder content we display.

Uploading Media

To upload media, start by clicking Add New.

You can either drag and drop files to upload them or select files. Simply drag files from your computer’s file manager or click Select Files to find your file. Once your images are selected, they will appear in the top left of the grid of images. Click on your uploaded image if you would like to add alt text. Alt text describes the image to Google or screen readers and is good for ranking your page in search results. For more information on alt tag optimization, read this article from Yoast.

Adding Images to Posts and Pages

Once your images have been uploaded, they can be placed inside pages and posts. Navigate to the post or page you want to place the image in. Then, find the content section you would like to edit. In this example, we will add an image to a blog post.

Then, click Add Media. This will bring up a window where you can select the image you have uploaded. If you forgot to upload first, you can upload now by clicking Upload Files. Select the image you want to insert into your content. Then select Insert into Post (or the applicable button).
Your image will appear in your post where your cursor was clicked. Clicking on the image in your post will make a small toolbar appear. Selecting Align Right or Align Right will make the text float around the image. Play with these settings until you get the desired effect.

We recommend using the eyeball to preview your image and post at different screen sizes. Afterwards, save your content and post or page as usual. Just like that, you have uploaded media and embedded an image into your Divi post or page on WordPress.
