The image gets added to a new section. While it is selected, you see a few options above it.

First, on the left, you have Crop, which lets you crop the image. Instead of clicking this icon, you can also press Enter, which is the keyboard shortcut.

Then you have Uncrop, which reverses cropping.

Next, there’s Insert link, which lets you add a link to the image, so you can send people to another page once they click your image.

Then there’s the three dots icon (More editing options) with three options:

  • Replace image – lets you choose another image
  • Add alt text – screen readers access alt text for people who might have trouble seeing your content. It’s also very important for SEO.
  • Add caption – lets you add a caption to the image. You can move the caption above the image or to the side.
