Working with Images in Articles

It's Easy to Add Images To Your Articles; Here's How.

It's quick and easy to add images to your articles-- when and where you want. 

First, keep in mind that you must not use images without permission, so images from AP, for example, can't be used. And you must provide attribution for the image.

Browse to the Image You Want To Upload: One icon looks like a video screen with a pencil. That lets you browse to the spot on your hard drive where you have the image, and then upload it.

Just position your cursor on the text entry field where you want the image to appear and then click on the icon. Click the Browse button. You can then browse your hard drive to find the image and then click on it.
