On the next screen, you'll see all of the images that the widget was able to find in the article. Click the image you'd like to use and click 'done'. Alternatively, chose 'Upload an image from my computer'.
The Widget will automatically pull in the article headline and a short summary (either the first paragraph or a summary that the web page publisher has specified).

To add a caption, click the '+ caption' button or select 'Caption' from the Actions menu.
Then add your caption. You can also change the title from Caption to something more appropriate such as Key Quote, Comment or Stats. Finally, click the 'Save' button.
