I wrote this 6-page guide to posting photos with WordPress (PDF) for a friend who wanted to know the basics of writing posts and uploading photos to his website with WordPress. I wrote it as I was learning it, but I think I got most of it right. It’s written for Vista PCs using Firefox, but it would likely work with other sets up too. The WordPress version is 2.9.1.
