There will be times when you simply need to add an image in a widget area, whether it’s your sidebar, your footer, or even your widget areas used for your theme’s homepage.
These images could be a logo, a photo or even an affiliate ad. In some cases, you might want to link the image as well.
In this video tutorial, you will learn how to use the Image widget for this and an option if you don’t want to add yet another plugin to your site.
Note, if you have Jetpack installed there is a similar widget available by activating your Extra Sidebar Widgets module.
