Hello there! I’m here to help you properly upload a Flickr photo onto your blog. I will show you pictures from my own blog below. Your blog might look slightly different. To get started, first sign into your WordPress blog:

Another way you could also insert a Flickr photo into your blog post is by going to the “Add Media” icon on your screen:
Click on “Insert from URL” on the left column:
Insert the Flickr photo URL that you copied before. Example shown below:
