To upload an image, click on Site Settings then go into Images.
Alternatively, you can click on the Images tile from the dashboard.
Click on Upload an Image.
Select the image you want to upload. It is recommended that you use .JPG or .JPEG images since these file types resize well for web with an optimum file size. This is the normal file type produced when you take a photo with a digital camera or phone. Try to avoid .PNG files since these tend to be large and don't optimise readily for web.
You can upload multiple images by pressing on the Shift key and select the first and last file at the ends of the entire range you want to select or tick on the boxes as you hover your mouse pointer the images as shown below.

- Title - This helps search engines interpret your image and is used by screen readers
