When you run a blog, you obviously publish a lot of posts with images or photos depicting some notions, events, actions, or definite people and products you promote. If you write about digital products, templates, designs, illustrations, eBooks, or any other things from various online resources, you, of course, need to upload their snapshots and probably link them to the original source.
The link you add can also redirect users to another page of your blog you want your visitors to land at. This will be the internal linking.
Go to Posts -> Add New or choose any post from Posts -> All Posts menu in your admin dashboard.
To add an image into the post click the Add Media button, choose a file you want to insert from your media library and click the Insert into Post button.
When the image is added, click on it once and select the Insert/edit link option in the visual editor.
Insert the image link into the correspondent popup field and click the Apply button.
If you want your image link to be open in a new tab, click the gear icon to open Link options, check the ‘Open link in a new tab’ checkbox and click the Update button.
That’s all! Now you can preview your draft, publish or update and view your post to see your image live and make sure it is really clickable.
