How to Allow People to Upload Photos to WordPress

WordPress is software you can use to create a website or blog. The software allows you to highly customise your website; thousands of plugins and widgets are available for you to use. The standard WordPress installation does not allow your users to upload photos to WordPress; in order to achieve this functionality, you must install two different plugins to your WordPress website. WordPress plugins, like the actual software, are free.
