Now that you've got a few pages in your new website, let's make it visually more appealing by adding a featured image. You can either edit an existing page that you've already made, or you can create a new page, which is what I'll do in the following instructions.
- First, add a new page (or edit one you already have made). To add a new page, from the Admin menu, Go to Content > Add content > Article
- In the Image field, browse your local hard drive for the image you want to use. Once you have selected the image, press Open then click the Upload button.
- For accessibility reasons, be sure to include Alternative text. This text will be used by screen readers, search engines, or when the image cannot be loaded.
- Fill in the rest of the required fields to create an Article, then click the Save button.
By default, the image will automatically be placed above the main content or Body of the Article. In my next blog post, I'll show you how to add an image insert button to include images in the body of your article and add a few image styles to customize your site.
