Images can be a very important element of any blog post. Adding featured images in a WordPress blog post is a very easy process. To add a featured image to your blog post, simply navigate to your blog post page and scroll down to the “Featured Image” section on the right side bar beneath the “Tags” area.
Click on “Set featured image” and you will be taken to your WordPress photo library. Then, simply click on the image you want to use for your post, make sure your image title and alt text read as you want (note: if you are using the same image in multiple pages of your site, the information you enter for title, alt text, etc. will be the same throughout). Next, click on the blue “set featured image” button. From there, you will be taken back to your post edit page and you should see your featured image in the right side bar. Update your post page and you should be good to go!
