Add images from a post or page

This method works only on sites with no plugins or custom themes installed.

  1. Open the editor by creating a new post or page or open an existing one.
  2. Add a block that uses an image, such as the image block or the gallery block.
  3. Select Media Library as the source for the image.
  4. Select the Choose media library source button in the top-left corner.
  5. Select Free Photo Library from the options shown.
You can select an image from the Free Photo Library within the block editor.

Add a term to the search box and select the image you want to use.

Single image blocks, such as the image block or the cover block, limit the selection to one image at a time.

Blocks supporting multiple images, such as the gallery block, allow selecting multiple images from the Free Photo Library at once. They will first get copied to your media library. Then, select them once again to add them to the gallery.

Select the image you want to add to your site from the Free Photo Library within the editor.

Working with images

The photographer credit gets added to the caption of each image. It is not necessary to keep the credit on your site.

Revisit your theme’s support page to check the ideal image dimensions for elements like featured images, headers, your site logo, and more. If you know these optimal sizes, you can adjust an image right in your media library or with another editing tool, such as PicMonkeyCanva, Pixlr, or Photopea.
