Please keep in mind that the drag and drop uploader only works in browsers with HTML5 upload support such as the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. Other browsers will still show the Select Files button or the basic browser uploader form.

Images uploaded to your Media Library will not be displayed anywhere on your site. To add images already in your media library to your posts, see the Insert an Image You Have Already Uploaded section below!
