Just click the button, shown in the image below. (Your Add Media button may look different on older versions of WordPress. Make sure you back up your database and upgrade to the latest version, for improved site security and features!)
Next comes the fun part, the most common question: how do I wrap text around my image?
Before clicking the “Insert into Post” button, notice a few things. Look at the alignment dropdown on the bottom. Set it to left or right, and the text on your site will automatically wrap around the image.
A few more things to note: most people see Title and Alt and have no idea what to do with them. Well, for starts, both are good for SEO.
Title, will, in some browsers, allow a little tooltip to appear next to the cursor when hovering over the image. However, this does not work on any touchpad device. It has become increasingly less useful for anything other than SEO.
Alt text, however, is VERY important. This is not just good for SEO, but it is for your blind site visitors with a screenreader. So describe the image, don’t just slap some generic text on there or a bunch of SEO keywords.
The Link To button, throws people. Here’s what the options do:
From the wordpress.org website:
“The Link To settings determine the URL/web address to which the image will be linked when clicked on by a visitor to your site. You can specify the following image link settings:
Attachment Page: Links your inserted image to its WordPress media attachment page.
Media File: Links your inserted image directly to the original, full-size version of the file.
Custom URL: Allows you to set a custom link URL for your inserted image to link to when clicked.
None: This setting will remove the link completely, rendering the image “un-clickable”.”
