The better the name that was given to the image when it was uploaded, the easier it will be to find it...

  3. In the editing toolbar, click on the Media browser icon
  4. Click on the 'Library' tab to the right
  5. If you know the name, you can add that to the 'File name' box and click on 'Apply' to find the image
  6. If you don't know the name, start by changing the 'Type' to 'image' and click on 'Apply' to find the image
  7. Use the numbers to the bottom of the images to navigate forward or backward
  8. Once found, click on 'Submit'
  9. Depending on your role:
    if you are a Senior Editor: click on 'Publishing options - Draft (Current)' in the left-hand menu, choose 'published' from the drop-down menu
