When I add my image to the Media Library, it looks fine. But when I adjust the picture on my page, it loses focus. How do I fix this?
To make the image on your page look as sharp as the image initially uploaded, you need to make sure that the resolution is correct.
- If you add your image to your page at a smaller and adjust the picture to appear larger, it will lose its clarity. Instead, add your picture larger than you think you will need it.
- Once your picture has been added to your page, select the image, then select the small picture that appears in the upper-left corner.
- Select the Advanced Settings tab in the window that appears.
- Adjust the size of the image to suit your needs by using the percentage options, then select the Update botton at the bottom of the window.
Certainly. Video content can either be uploaded to the WordPress Media Library, or, if there is a large number of video files you need to add, a separate AV directory (request by selecting the Get Help option on our online forms). You can also post videos from sites like BUniverse or YouTube by pasting the embed code into the HTML editor on your WordPress page. Similarly, you can stream your own Flash video content from our dedicated server.
Navigate to your Media Library. Once there, you’ll see some files in the list. It will look something like this:
There are two ways to get the URL for your image:
- Right-click on the Permalink and select Copy Link Location.
- Click on the name of the image (in this example, pencil). This will bring you to the editing screen for that specific image.
- From there you can select and copy the URL information.
Each WordPress website has 8GB of storage space for your media files. While this is enough space for many, you may find that you have several large files that quickly fill up your disk space. If this happens, contact the IT Help Center using the form in the WordPress Help section.
