How can I attach images to a post which have already been attached to other posts without having to upload them twice?

I don't want to insert the images into the post, I simply want to attach the same set of images to multiple posts.

  • See Codex how to insert image in posts. Is this what you're searching for? Asking because you tagged the question with plugins. – kaiser Oct 30 '13 at 11:45
  • by mistake it is taged to plugin, i m looking for adding images to post once uploaded, rather upload again and again – Zeeshan Oct 30 '13 at 11:49
  • Then see the link in my comment above. Also please read into the help center "On Topic" page to see what is on topic. Questions about wordpress.com hosted blogs are off topic. – kaiser Oct 30 '13 at 11:49

From selecting the 'Add Media' button you can select 'Media Library'. Do this instead of the 'Upload Files' option. This way you can reuse a already uploaded image.

Is this the answer you were searching for?
