Accessing the Media Add New Screen in WordPress

Doing that on this screen is basically a bulk upload option for uploading or populating your WordPress site.
Typically you upload your images, videos and audio files when you are creating you Page or Post by clicking the Add Media Button on the editor.
It really makes no difference how or where you upload or add you media all of the files will be located in the Media Library. When you Add Media WordPress will create three different versions of the image file, a thumbnail version, a medium size version and the full size version.
If you decide to upload your files using an FTP program you can but you may find limited options as far as sizes and file information when you place those files in any of your pages or post.
You will want to optimize and size your media files prior to adding them to your website so your pages load quickly and smoothly.
Images can be posted in to slide shows and galleries depending on your preferences. Video files and audio files can be arranged in playlist on any page or post.
Experiment with all the various ways you can use media files on your blog and pick the method that best suits your style and topic.
