When the Add Images window loads, you will have choices:

  • Upload: You will be able to choose files and upload multiple files at once, including JPG, GIF or PNG files.
  • From this blog: If you have previously uploaded images, you will be able to choose them.
  • From Google Album Archive: You can choose photos you have previously uploaded as profile photos, scrapbook photos, etc.
  • From your phone: If you were using Google for photo backup on your phone, these images are available for you to use.
  • From your webcam: If you have a camera connected, you can use it.
  • From a URL: Enter the URL of an image you have online already. There is a warning about copyright infringement and using the images of others without permission.

You can drag and drop images directly into your post drafts if you prefer.
