How to Add a Picture to Your Sidebar on Your WordPress Website
Pictures are a great way to add life to your blog posts and website content.
They can be used to highlight and organize your content, as well as provide a touch of humanity that makes people connect with your material more.
However, adding a picture to your blog post or website can be a challenge. To help out, we’ll teach you how to add a picture to your WordPress sidebar. This way you’ll always have a nice little picture to remind people to visit your site.
Find A Picture That Suits Your Content
The first step in adding a picture to your blog or website is to find a picture that suits your content. This shouldn’t be hard because you can always use Google Images to search for pictures.
Once you have a picture in mind, take a look at the blog posts and websites you’ve published. Are there any with a theme or section related to art, design, or photography?
If so, you can use these as inspiration for your own content.
Now that you have an idea of what subject you’ll base your picture on, take some time to find a good picture. You don’t want to use an inappropriate photo for your blog or website. Doing so could potentially hurt your credibility as an expert in your field. Not to mention that it’s unprofessional.
Once you have a good picture, take some time to look at it from different perspectives. This will help you find flaws in the photo that you can improve upon. Once you’ve done so, return to the picture and use your new-found knowledge to your advantage. There’s no need to rush. This is all part of the creative process.
Add The Image To Your Sidebar On Your WordPress Website
Once you have your picture, the next step is to add it to your side bar on your WordPress website. To do this, navigate to your site’s Dashboard and click on the Appearance button. Next, click on the Add New button.
From here, you’ll see a variety of elements you can add to your sidebar. If you have a picture you’d like to add, click on the browse button next to “Image” and a window will open. You can either upload a file here or click on the “Choose From Gallery” button. Doing so will open up a gallery of images you can browse through.
Find a picture you like and click on the “Insert Into Post” button. This will insert the image in the post you’re viewing. Now that the photo is in your post, you can click on the “Quick Actions” button to the right of the image to make some changes. To add the picture to your sidebar, click on the “Edit” button next to the “Image” icon. Doing so will open up a box where you can directly edit the photo’s caption and description.
Take your time and make sure you put in some creative words for the caption. This is a great way to draw more people to your site.
Lastly, don’t forget to save the post after you make changes. This is so you can go back and see your work later.
