WordPress makes it easy to add images to your WordPress site. You can upload them from within WordPress using the built-in file uploading utility in the Posts screen. You can also use an FTP Client program to upload multiple images at once.
WordPress can resize images and create thumbnails.

Images can be used in a variety of methods in your WordPress posts and Pages. They can be a major subject, or a referenced detail that enhances the information or story.
The first thing you should consider is the “look” of the images on your page. Not what the images are of, but the general look of how they flow and interact with the rest of the content on your page. Wrapping Text Around Images helps you to begin to understand how images interact with the text around them, changing the margins, padding and borders around the images within the content.
It will also help you understand how to create captions under your images.The next thing to consider is the size of the images. There are two ways of actually sizing an image. It is either the size that it is, or a thumbnail link which, when clicked, takes the user to a new page with an enlarged image of the graphic.
