Inserting photos without breaking text (6 posts)

    I did a search and didn't see this topic covered...

    I would like to insert photos into my blog, but I don't want to break the text (and have a long space between one paragraph and the next. I would prefer to have the text mold around the photo.

    I understand that this means using smaller photos -- that's not a problem. But am I trying to do too much with the blog? Is it possible to have photo and text essentially on the same line?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    There are 2 ways you can do this. The quickest way is, when you insert the tag for the image, add align="left" or align="right" to the code so it looks like this:

    <img src="/wp-images/image.jpg" align="left" />

    The other way would be to add the following to your stylesheet:

    .alignleft { float: left; }
    .alignright { float: right; }

    Then add class="alignleft" or class="alignright" to your image tag:

    <img src="/wp-images/image.jpg" class="alignleft" />

    I use:
    .alignleft { float: left; margin: 4px; clear: left}
