  4. Drag and drop files into the indicated area from your computer's desktop or file browser (Windows Explorer for PC; Finder for Mac), or click the Select Files button to locate the file(s) on your computer

Your media is now available to insert into pages or posts.

Adding a Photo to a Page or Post
