Intro to the Content Editor

The Content Editor is where Sitecore users manage the content and appearance of each page hosted on Sitecore. You can create pages, edit pages, insert links, format text, display images, display iFrame media, and many more functions.

Note the distinction between the Content Editor and the Media Library. The Media Library merely houses images and other non-HTML files (PDFs, DOCs, PPTs), which can be added to a page in the Content Editor
