How to Add an Image to your Ghost Blog

Post cover image

Inserting an image into your blog post is very simple. All you need to do is type in the following: ![](). This is very similar to adding in a link, but the image has a ! at the beginning.

Between the [], add the images alternative text, and between the (), add the image URL. You can either enter in a URL, or upload a picture yourself. To upload a picture, just click on the graphic in the preview window (examples below).
