How to upload your designs to WordPress

Once you have created your designs with Canva or any other design tool, you need to upload them to WordPress.

  1. The first method is to use the image block to upload it directly to your post. To do this, follow these steps.

  • Go to the WordPress editor of your post and click on the “+” button. This will open the blocks section.
  • Search for the image block and click on it. Another window will pop up with three options; “Upload”, “Media Library”, and “Insert from URL”.
  • You can use the “Upload” option when the image is saved on your computer.
  • Use the “Media Library” option when the image is saved in the WordPress media library.
  • You can use the “Insert from URL” option if you have the image’s URL link.
  1. The second method is to upload it to the WordPress Media Library and add it to your post later. To do this, follow these steps.
  • Go to the “Media” section in your WordPress dashboard.
  • Click on the “Add New” button.
  • Choose “Select files” and upload the image file from your computer. Once the image is uploaded, you can add it to your post.
