Step 2: Select URL tab and paste the URL you copied

Click on the URL tab. Before that, remember to copy the URL of the image you found on the internet.

In my opinion, using an image URL with the rich text editor to add pictures in your content is the most convenient method. With this way, you can find whatever you need from the internet (of course, remember personal consent or copy rights issues) then all you need to do is copy its URL, no need to download which creates more unnecessary steps and wastes the device’s storage.
