Why you should to use "Images and Links" instead insert Image inside article content?

How to use "Images and Links"?

In previous versions of Joomla, adding images to articles had to be done through the text editor. But now with Joomla 3, you'll notice a new pane on the right of the article called Images and Links. This feature enables you to insert two images into your article: One in the intro, and another in the main body.

Step 1 : You go to manager of the article you want to add images. If you not insert images into tab " Image and Link ":

Intro Article

Main Article

Step 2 : Choose tab " Image and Link ", select image for " Intro Image".
