Where are the uploaded images stored in WordPress?

When you upload an image for a page or a post WordPress stores the image at the following location:

wp-content\uploads\YEAR\MONTH

where YEAR and MONTH are the year and month of the upload date.

WordPress creates a new folder every month to reduce the number of files per folder. This way you can find your files easier and the server can also find the files faster, because it can work with a smaller list of directory entries.
