WordPress Visual Editor Mastery - Anthony Hortin

The post and page editors are the sections of the WordPress dashboard that most users will spend the majority of their time in. But there are a lot of hidden gems on these screens that most people aren't aware of.

This presentation will take you through all of the common tasks you will perform, as well as some nifty little shortcuts.

All About Images - Helena Denley

WordPress 3.9 included some great enhancements to the image loading and editing capabilities of the page and post editors. You now have much finer control over the display of your images.

This presentation will cover all you need to know about using images in WordPress.
