Step 4:

You will need to add Title Text for your image before it can be inserted. It is also a good idea to add Alt Text – you should use a short phrase which describes your picture.

To stop the image being too large for your blog you can change the width or height by tapping on the number and editing the number. You can also use the % slider to change the size of your image.
