We all know that a rich text box editor is important for blog post types of websites. for a well-formatted blog post, we need a rich text box editor and when we post a blog to describe we must need many images and posters.

In this blog post, we learn how to upload or insert an image in TinyMCE editor from a computer step by step.

Step:1 create a new page

Create a new page and add some code in the header

    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
    <script src=""></script>
    <script src=""></script>
    <title>TinyMCE image upload</title>

next, add some code in the body part to view TinyMCE editor

<div class="container">
        <div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-8">
                <textarea name="" id="" cols="30" rows="10"></textarea>
                <input name="image" type="file" id="upload" class="hidden" onchange="">
            <div class="col-md-4"></div>

Step:2 Add some CSS and Script 

Now, add some CSS code to hide the input text box named image.


At the last add some script to display TinyMCE editor with image upload feature.

    $(document).ready(function() {
          selector: "textarea",
          theme: "modern",
          paste_data_images: true,
          plugins: [
            "advlist autolink lists link image charmap print preview hr anchor pagebreak",
            "searchreplace wordcount visualblocks visualchars code fullscreen",
            "insertdatetime media nonbreaking save table contextmenu directionality",
            "emoticons template paste textcolor colorpicker textpattern"
          toolbar1: "insertfile undo redo | styleselect | bold italic | alignleft aligncenter alignright alignjustify | bullist numlist outdent indent | link image",
          toolbar2: "print preview media | forecolor backcolor emoticons",
          image_advtab: true,
          file_picker_callback: function(callback, value, meta) {
            if (meta.filetype == 'image') {
              $('#upload').on('change', function() {
                var file = this.files[0];
                var reader = new FileReader();
                reader.onload = function(e) {
                  callback(, {
                    alt: ''
          templates: [{
            title: 'Test template 1',
            content: 'Test 1'
          }, {
            title: 'Test template 2',
            content: 'Test 2'

i have a trial version of tinymce with api key. Where i have to insert the api key while initializing tinymce to avoid the comment "This domain is not registered with Tiny Cloud. Please see the quick start guide or create an account" Except for this warning your code is working fine. Thanks

Wow, this is an amazing and informative post! I want to add little information that should be known by every user who is using TinyMCE. It’s difficult to copy/paste the data to the editor from Word document, Excel, Powerpoint, or paint and you need a plugin to do this. I am using Pasteitcleaned and this plugin works fine with amazing functionality.
