    We recently rolled out a new way of handling media on WordPress.com. Here’s a breakdown of the changes made to some of our most popular features:

    Uploading Files

    You can still upload files in two ways: by going to Media → Add New from your dashboard or by clicking the new Add Media button right above the editing area of a page or a post.

    Editing Images

    Need to crop, flip, rotate or resize an image? Those tools are available through the Media Library, as well as from the image itself. Learn more here.

    Gallery

    Good news! You can now easily add more than one gallery to a post or a page. The same gallery styles are still available. You can find full instructions on adding and editing galleries on our Gallery reference page. The order of images in galleries can be manually changed by dragging and dropping, or it can be reversed or randomized at the click of a button.

    Slideshows

    Slideshows are now integrated into the galleries feature. You can learn more how to add a slideshow in our guide to galleries and check out our slideshows FAQ.

    Editors, VideoPress, Contact Form

    Our visual and text editors feature the same functions, but look better! The process for inserting videos and embedding contact forms is also the same.
