The blog I need help with is mbruschi305.wordpress.com. January 14, 2019 at 9:11 am #3249727 kokkiehStaff Hi there, Yes, it does. When you add an image to a post the image is only embedded there. The image itself is stored in the media library, and deleting an image from the library will also cause it to disappear anywhere that it has been embedded.
