How to Wrap Text Around an Image

In this tutorial you will learn how to add text around an image and how to add padding around the image once it's re-positioned.

1. The Standard Image Location

Whether you import an image with your URL or add one manually the standard image location is between two paragraphs. However, there may be times when you would like to wrap text around an image. For this follow the instructions below.

1. The Standard Image Location

2. Activate the Paragraph Container

Click on the paragraph container which houses the image. The best way to see the different containers is to hover over the image and then just outside of the image. As you move your mouse you will see the containers with the words of each container appearing in the upper left corner. Once you have located the 'Paragraph' container click on it to activate it. You will know that it is activated when you see the word 'Paragraph' in the upper left corner.

2. Activate the Paragraph Container

3. Float the Image to the Left or Right

Once the paragraph container is activated click on the 'Inspector' tab in the side bar. Then from the drop down options select 'Attributes'. Here you will see the option 'Float' with a drop down selector. You can align the image to the left, right, or center. Make your selection.

4. Add Padding to the Image

Now that the image has the wrapping text you may want to add some padding. This will give some white space around the edges of the image. There are two ways that you can do this: the first is manually and the second with a slider.

To manually add padding again go to the 'Inspector' tab in the side bar and from there select the 'Padding' drop menu item. You will see 4 boxes forming a square. You can add padding to any of the four sides of the image by entering in the value in pixels.

4. Add Padding to the Image

The second option of adding padding is to use the slider. This is the green bar as seen in the image below. Just above the green bar you have various options to choose from. The first one is the full square (all four sides). Click on it and then move the slider to the right. It will add equal space to all four sides of the image. If you only want one or two sides only to have padding click on the side options and again move the slider to the right until you get the amount of padding you want.

Here you can see that padding has been added on all four side of the image.
