Replacing an Image is Simple

Edit Screen

Once you have decided on a different image you can replace the old image by first going to the edit post or page screen. Simply find the page or post you wish to edit, hover your cursor over the title, then select edit and you will be on the edit screen. Find the image in your post by scrolling up or down with the arrows on the side.

Select Image

After you find the image you need to delete, click on the image and a border will appear around the image as well as two icons. The first one is the edit icon and to the right of that is the delete icon.

Delete Image

Next, click on the delete icon. The delete icon is the red circle with a red slash through it. Even though you have deleted this image from your post or page, the image will remain in your media library for future use if desired.
