You can also caption the image with whatever info you want. Here is an example if you would like the image on the left side of your text. You can size to match of course.

Here’s a better example if you had more text and you were writing a story with better layout.

  • Left: Aligns the image on the left hand margin, and any text that is on the page wraps (or flows) around the image to the available space on the right.
  • Right: Aligns the image on the right hand margin, and any text that is on the page wraps (or flows) around the image to the available space on the left.
  • Center: Aligns the image to the center of the page, with no text displayed around it.
  • None: Inserts the image in to the page with no alignment

You can also link the picture so it’s click-able and it points to where ever you want. Click this image to see.

 

 

Image Size can be changed easily to fit your needs…

  • Thumbnail: Displays a small thumbnail-sized version of your image on the page/post. Note, by default the Thumbnail size is a square, so some cropping of your original image may occur.
  • Medium: Displays a medium-sized version of your image on the page/post. This is a good size to use with Left/Right alignments, as it leaves sufficient space for legible text to either side.
  • Large: Displays a large-sized version of your image on the page/post. Note: WordPress will determine the width of the content column of your theme, and display the largest possible image for that space.
  • Full Size: Displays a full-sized version of your image on the page/post. Note: WordPress will determine the width of the content column of your theme, and display the largest possible image for that space. If your original image is larger than this column width, the full size of the image may not be displayed.

    Hi, thanks for sharing. I’m wondering if it’s OK to copy some of the text in my site?
