Clicking on it you will be prompted with a window that will allow you to insert an URL and a title:
In that screen you can paste the URL of the image in the “Source” box and you can also add a textual description in the box “Image description” that will not appear on screen, but will be shown only if the image itself is not loaded (e.g. for a technical issue).
Clicking “Ok” the image will be inserted.
If you have an image stored on your computer, insead, you can follow a similar path to the URL, clicking on the icon of the editor toolbar and then selecting “Upload” instead:
In this screen you can pick an image from your computer (either by selecting it or by drag and drop it on the specified area) and wait for it to be uploaded. When the process is completed you will be show the same screen as when using an URL, with the “Source” field already filled:
you can then proceed with either adding the image description, or inserting the image into the post by clicking “Ok”.
