How to embed images in your essay:

To make sure your images are a good size, click on the “JPEG” link below the photo and either hotlink to the larger version of the image from WordPress or download that image and re-upload it to WordPress, so that the WordPress post will display a larger, clearer image than simply copying, which can produce a thumbnail image.
