The New Image Widget enables WordPress users to quickly and easily add images to particular widget areas in their website theme. Using the New Image Widget makes it easier to enhance the visual appeal of your websites. For example, you can now tailor content focused on what the reader finds on your page. This can further enhance your readers browsing experience and encourages them to return to your site.
