In a blog post, we often need to insert images and videos . We might also need to attach certain files in the blog post. Videos and Images are often used by bloggers to illustrate or demonstrate their points in a better way. This article going to deal with topic of wordpress media manager.
While writing a post in Blogger.com you can just use simple “Browse….” button to upload images and videos from local computer or from “Web Address URL”. In Blogger.com you can only add an image or video while you write a post.
Image below shows how to add images with Blogger.com
WordPress gives us two options under Media menu “Flash Uploader” and “Browser Uploader“. WordPress shows you all the uploaded files in a list and you can also edit them. We can also use “File URL” multiple times in different posts and pages.
Note: A “File URL” is the URL of where uploaded file can be accessed.
WordPress allows us to do the same as Blogger.com but with an added feature which lets us add files and store them like your personal media library. The URL of these files can be shared with friends who can view images or videos directly without the need to create a post.
With both Blogger.com and WordPress you can add images and videos easily. But the biggest difference is that you can upload and manage files without writing a post on WordPress. This doubles up by using WordPress blog like your own personal FTP which can store files online. So just rock and roll with WordPress!
