WordPress tip

Did you know that you can access any image files you have your desktop computer or laptop and use them on your WordPress website through the Upload Media feature? This can be a great way to use unique images that you own the copyright to and add them to your blog or website, rather than paying for stock images or using free pictures that lack individuality. You can use the Multi-File Uploader in WordPress to add a bunch of photos by dragging-and-dropping into the Window.
