Here you need to hit a search on which plugin you want to install.

Type the name in the search box, and your plugin will appear associated with an Install Button.

⇒Next, you need to go to the WordPress admin area and visit Plugins > Add New page.

This will bring you to the plugin uploading page. Here you need to click on the Choose File button and select the zip file of the Image Hover Effects Plugin which you downloaded before.

After finishing the installation process a notification will appear on that page mentioning ‘Plugin Installed Successfully’.
