Complete Guide to Adding Images to Your Posts in Joomla

Images add meaning to a website. So you must make use of graphics and images whenever necessary. If you’ve built your website in Joomla and new to the platform, you might be wondering how to add images to your posts. That’s possible through the Media Manager in Joomla.

The manager saves all the media files. When the page is loading, Joomla gathers all the required elements from the respective sources and display it on the web page in real time. So to add image to your post, you have to add images to the Media Manager in Joomla first.

There are two ways of doing it.

In this article, we explain how you can add images to your posts in Joomla.

Upload Image via Content Editor Window

The first method is to use the Content Editor window. Here are the steps you need to follow:
  • Log in to your Joomla website back-end using correct credentials
  • Open the post where you want to insert the image. Below are some of the ways to do it:
  • Click on Content. From the drop-down menu, select "Article Manager". Then select the article you want to insert image for. Find and hit the “Edit” tab and then Image tab located below the Article content window.
  • If you’re creating a new post, then select the “Add New Article” option from the Control Panel to add an image for that.
  • You can also add image from the front-end if you have explicit permission to do so. If you’re permitted, then click on the Edit tab. It’d open the editor where you can insert the image files.
  • Next, you need to select the place where you want to place the image within the post. You can place it at the beginning, in the middle, or towards the end of the post
  • Click on “Insert” on the screen. It will open up the insert image screen. Select the image and then click on the Insert button
  • Lastly, you’d have to select the image properties like description, title, float, and provide a caption
  • Click on Insert Image to insert the image
  • Save the changes and exit
Adding Image Via Insert Image Screen

The second way to insert an image to your post is to use the Insert Image Panel. Here are the steps you need to follow:
  • In the Upload section, click on Browse button.
  • Select the image files that you want to upload.
  • Start the upload process by clicking Upload. You’ll see a green button at the top when the process is complete.
  • Insert the image into the post wherever you intend to.
  • Save the changes and exit.
You can also insert images from other sources like Dropbox or Google drive. For that, you’d have to grab the image URL and paste it into the required box. But take precautions since the images may not load if the URL breaks.

So that’s how you upload and use images in a Joomla post. For further assistance, contact the customer support with your queries.
