Hi, welcome to this tutorial on using Site Content images, I hope you find it helpful.

Unfortunately, Site Content images, as they are, aren’t compatible with WordPress, and apart from cropping a square or circle, should be edited in an image editing program such as Gimp, Canva, Paint, etc, and saved in a compatible image file format. Jpeg, PNG, and Gif being the most widely used. Personally, I use Gimp, the poor man’s Photoshop or Dreamweaver. as my image editor

All the images in Site Content are copyright and royalty free and in the public domain, and are taken from various free image websites such as Pixabay, Public Domain Pictures, Upsplash, etc. Using Site Content images saves you trawling through the various free sites trying to find the images you want. There are now two ways you can download the chosen image. Let’s look at the first one, which I think is the quickest and easiest.

Whichever method you choose you need to save the image where you can open it in an image editing program. I use File Explorer and save images in a folder named My Website Images.

Thank you Brian. Just what I needed as I was trying to use Windows Paint to edit an image. And failing. So I will experiment and practice with GIMP.

Thank you Harry, very nice explanation. To be honest, I didn't know that I can save the image straight from the image content, I always save one from Google as I didn't find it there . Thank you.

Hi, thanks for the comment, Angel, glad it helped. Wherever possible steer clear of Google images. Even using the advanced mode showing images as being copyright free, they may contain some hidden restrictions such as attribution, personal use only, etc. If you do use them always check the terms of use.

I don't create content, I only use site content images, as if you can't find copyright free images applicable to your niche there, it's unlikely you'll find them anywhere on free image sites, or even if you did, it could take many hours of searching..

Thank you, Harry, for your reply, I always check for copywriting and if it is it didn't let me download it. straight just like this. Thank you. I saw when I open on the right corner of the image, the image open onto another site, ok, maybe I should check this closer. honestly, I am a v much google image user I know is not so good but...is like this bcs as I said I couldn't find what I want in here.
