Inserting Images into the Body 

  1. Always start with a blank line
  2. While editing your main page body text,  go down and select  Image Insert.
  3. Choose a file from your computer (use the Choose File button) and then click "Upload"
     Upload
  4. You will then need to pick which size you want to insert
  5. Remember to give your image Alternate text for accessibility
  6. Then click "Insert".
After you have an image, you can use the Styles menu to left or right align your image. This will cause the text to wrap around your image.
 
If the size you selected isn't working for you, you can always delete the image in the body of your text, choose a new size, and click "Insert" again.
