Image Handling: Understanding the Basics of WordPress Media

Good photos, logos, icons and other images on a site are key to a website's appeal, popularity and conversion rates. We will review uploading images in pages and posts, including the media settings, size options, as well as default image sizes – resizing images, creating thumbnails and the value of the alt tag and captions for SEO.

The presentation will also demonstrate how to use the WordPress built-in image alignment features and help attendees understand how images interact with the text; and will include wrapping text around images, changing margins, padding and borders around the images within the content and when and how to use the ‘Featured Image’ option. Photoblogs and Galleries will also be discussed, as well as some of the best plugins to use to manage and/or display images. We will close with a Q&A. Please bring your computer and your questions about image handling in WordPress.

Reminder: This is a class designed for those new to WordPress. We will not be discussing advanced image handling techniques. If you have advanced questions please save them for the Q&A at the next general WordPress Meetup.

      I think it's at handsonwp.com under the Knowledge Base tab, though I thought they said wpaustin.com, but I can't find it there either.
