What is Media Library?

the media library is a place that contains all the media files we have stored in our website database. some of the media files
includes videos, images, infographics, audio, pdf, word documents, illustrations, etc.

Hint: if you imported demo data to your website ensure that you visit the media library to see the sizes and dimensions of images on the website
so that you can create your images or resize your images to a bearable size. e.g. open any of your posts and click on the featured images to
see the dimensions of the images that accompany your WordPress theme. though some themes come with different image sizes but
have a plugin to fit images in the image carousel.
