Click on the coloured block to select it, then click the Insert media icon to choose your image or video.
Creating layouts with post templates
When using post templates you can work one by one, or use different blocks to work out a layout before inserting your content.This video shows how you can use post templates to build a rough layout of the post without content. Select different blocks to build your post. You can save the post and preview it on your blog with the placeholders. Once you're happy with how your blog post is coming together, you can select each placeholder and replace it with your own content. Don't worry if you need to make changes, you can always add or delete post template blocks.
Click Save and preview the post to see it on the web.
When your post is done, you just need to click the Publish button.
