Adding images to your website is one of the easiest and most effective things you can do to grab and hold the attention of your readers. But, there’s more to adding images to your WordPress website than simply inserting them!
Getting images to behave in WordPress can sometimes be a bit challenging, but getting it right is very rewarding. By walking through each step, either in your website or our online WordPress lab, you’ll gain a hands-on feel for the entire process.
In this lab, you’ll learn to find the right images online, get them safely into your WordPress website, make them land where you want them to on the page, do some simple editing to enhance their look, and (very importantly) attach keywords to improve search engine optimization.
|What other offerings relate to this one?||We believe it’s best to begin at the beginning – in this case with “Intro to WordPress: First Steps.” You may want to lay out your basic architecture next. From there you can move forward confidently with the help of additional intro sessions and focused labs.
|Who should attend?||If you’ve attended at least our “Intro to WordPress: First Steps” workshop OR have some experience in self-hosted WordPress. Attend if you’re ready to build your website and you already have some content uploaded. Having your architecture at the ready will help too.|
|What’s the process?||We’ll get to know you and your aims first. We’ll walk through the process of handling images using targeted exercises either in our online WordPress lab or your own WordPress website to have you experience best practices around key steps.
|What does it cost and what’s included?||$35 includes the workshop, hand-outs, and coffee (or tea).|
|How long does it last?||Two (2) hours. Come up to thirty minutes early for coffee and bonding, and to set up your laptop. And, stay up to thirty minutes afterward for networking.|
|What do you need to bring?||An open mind; your laptop; a willingness to play with images; images you’ve already got loaded on your computer; and your favorite coffee cup if you’d like.|
