Add Media

Dress up your text-based posts and pages with individual images, image galleries, and slideshows.

First, click the “Add Media” button above the Visual Editor:


Then upload your images:

Add media

Or, to create a gallery, click on “Create Gallery” on the left side of the window, and then select the images you wish to include:

Choose gallery

Then, click on the Create a new gallery button in the bottom, right hand corner of the Media Manager:

Create a new gallery

If you love video, you can also embed videos on your blog from supported services, such as YouTube and Vimeo. Copy and paste the URL from your address bar — on its own line — into your post, publish the post, and you’re done!

Or, with the VideoPress feature, included with the WordPress.com Premium and WordPress.com Business plans, you can upload your own videos directly to your blog with the Add Media button — just like adding photos.
