Image Alignment

Image Alignment

Welcome to image alignment! The best way to demonstrate the ebb and flow of the various image positioning options is to nestle them snuggly among an ocean of words. Grab a mouse and let’s get started.


The image above is centered.


Look at how the text wrap around the 150×150 image, which is left aligned.

Give it more space. As you can see there should be some space above, below, and to the right of the image. The text should not be creeping on the image. Creeping is just not right.

Move the images. They need breathing room too. Let them speak like your words. Let them do their jobs without any hassle from the text. In about one more sentence here, we’ll see that the text moves from the right of the image down below the image in seamless transition. Again, letting the image do its thing. 

And now for a massively large image. It also has no alignment.


No disruption above!

The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

And now we’re going to shift things to the right align. Again, there should be plenty of room above, below, and to the left of the image. Just look at him there… Hey you! Way to rock that right side. I don’t care what the left aligned image says, you look great. Don’t let anyone else tell you differently.

For this purpose, you should see the text start to wrap below the right aligned image and settle in nicely. There should still be plenty of room and everything should be sitting pretty. Yeah… Just like that. It never felt so good to be right.

Images With Captions

And just when you thought we were done, we’re going to do it all over again with captions!

Look at 580x300 getting some caption love.
This is the caption beneath the image. caption

The image above is centered. The caption has a link in it. Click it to see if it does anything weird.

To the left!

Itty-bitty caption.
Itty-bitty caption.

 The rest of this paragraph is filler for the sake of seeing the text wrap around the   150×150 image, which is left aligned.

And there you have it! You survived the tumultuous waters of alignment. Image alignment achievement unlocked!
