This will give you a screen that lets you enter a title and text. Note that there are two ways of showing the text (Visual and text).  Visual is the easiest and sufficient for most people. Text allows you to modify the html code for the page.

The upload of the file may take a while. Wait until it is complete. Then select the picture you want to include from the library of available images (or documents). The one you have just uploaded will be the first. Ensure the image has a tick against it (and that those you don’t want uploading don’t have ticks). Then select “upload”.
