Advanced WYSIWYG Editor
If activated, you will see a word processor type tool bar across the top and the formatting tags will be hidden from view, this is known as a WYSIWYG - What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get - Editor. This is provided by the TinyMCE tool. Note that sometimes your theme styles will override your formatting and vice-versa. It is advisable to limit access to the WYSIWYG editor to senior Admins only.
Depending on your Site Preferences, you can allow images to be uploaded for use in your web pages.
It is recommended you upload all of your images and other files for the content, before you begin. Using the upload files button may give you a warning:

You will have a little more control over where your images are located by using Tools -> File Manager.
