The Wikimedia Commons has millions of images. To insert one of these image into a Wikipedia article, first click the section of page where you want the image to be placed.

Next, click the Insert MediaWiki Vector skin action arrow.png menu and choose the "Images and media" option to open a dialog box.

You can search for a suitable image by typing in the dialog box. It displays an initial set of suggested images from the Commons.

Once you see the name of a file you want, click on its thumbnail image. This places the image onto the page you are ing. You can then drag the image to change where it's placed on the page.
