  2. Select Popular from the drop-down menu.
  3. Drag and drop a Picture widget onto your page.


     
  4. The File Manager will open up, allowing you to either browse through the existing files or upload a new image file by clicking Upload Files. You can also choose to Add Stock Media which gives you access to a Pixabay's gallery of stock images (available on select packages).

To edit your picture

The Picture widget allows you to customize the look of your image, create an alt text and set up a link. Please check out Editing Pictures for further information on how to use the integrated image editing tool, Aviary.
