  5. Close the current dialogue box by clicking its X at top right. You will return to editing your post/page. Now scroll down to the area labelled 'File Gallery'.
  6. You will see thumbnails of the photos you chose. Hover your mouse over the photo you want - a quadrant of options appears (see the diagram below). Tick the central box to choose the photo you want.
  7. Make sure you have chosen the correct size of photo - thumbnail, medium, etc.
  8. Click the 'Insert single files' button. The correct image HTML will be inserted into the post/page.
