I need some help learning how to upload images with wordpress.
Basically, the following are the questions I need answered. I am very new to blogging, html, CSS, and wordpress so please explain any answers you can provide in detail. Thank you so much for any help you can provide.
1) How do I upload images to wordpress? I see there is a function inside of wordpress itself in the "post" area. Is this where I post am image?
2) Where does the image go in the wordpress directory once I upload it and additionally how do I get the internet link of the image once I upload it so I can use it on my blog?
3) Is wordpress automatically uploading it to a safe place for me to link to? I don't want to link an image on my blog that could be tracked back to wordpress and then allow my whole thing to be hacked. I know very little about the security of wordpress in this area.
Thank you very much for all the help you can provide.
