In our class, we will use the “From URL” option, since we are using the church’s computers. But for working at home, I strongly recommend downloading the image to your own computer and then uploading it to your WordPress.com account.

Most important: BE SURE to give credit to the photographer!!! I include the photographer’s online nickname in the caption and make the photo itself link back to his Flickr page.
