Wrapping Text Around Your Photos

By
Real Estate Agent with Coastal Properties Group International

This morning I finally posted a new profile photo, reflecting my 65 pound weight loss, and also posted a new team photo in the profile. Ron Gillis e-mailed me asking how I got the text to line up beside the photo. I know it's been covered before, but here it is again  (putting it in the profile is exactly the same method as doing it in a post):

Wherever you want to insert the picture, click on the tree icon Insert Photo Icon  in the gray header line at the top of the text box.  You'll get a popup box with two tabs at the top:

Photo Insert PopupNote the two tabs at the top, General and Appearance   

After you've uploaded your image, fill in the description and the title,  then - BEFORE you click Insert at the bottom, click on the Appearance tab at the top, and you'll get another window, like this:

Appearance Tab

and this is where you CONTROL your inserted photo.

The alignment box has a dropdown giving you various choices of where to put the text. Don't worry if you don't know what each one means, just look at the box below and you'll see the content change, reflecting how your drop down choice will look - left aligned, right aligned, text going all down the photo or just one line in the middle, etc.

The next choice is size. Keep the checkmark in the Constrain Proportions box checked (i.e., do nothing to it) and when you resize the photo it wiill keep its proportions.  You only need to change one dimension and the other will change automatically as long as the box is checked. Play with it a while and get a feel for the size you're comfortable with.

The remaining choices are optional - I usually put 2 in for vertical space and horizontal space.

When you're finished making choices, then click the Insert button at the bottom left, and it will appear in your post. 

Unfortunately, as far as I know, there's no edit - i.e., when it appears and you see that you forgot something, you'll have to delete the photo, and go back and start over.  (If anyone knows better, please let us know).

Hope this helps, Ron, and anyone else who's been wondering how to do it.

Laurie - Thanks. I do feel wonderful.

Candy - Thanks and you're welcome.

Andrew - Pictures do help to liven up blogs - glad you'll now be able to do more of that.

Jason - Thanks. Glad the information was helpful.

Nathan - You're welcome!

Bakie - You're welcome. Glad you're putting it to use.

? - Thanks. Glad you liked the info and my website. I feel very fortunate to have a great team around me.

Luba - You're so right - maintaining is as hard or harder than losing. No milestones, declining comments - just hard work keeping to those things you know you have to do or not do.

Jennifer - Thanks. When people start telling you that you don't look like your picture, you know you need a new shot!

Mitchell - Glad you've learned a shortcut - it's a real pain trying to downsize a huge photo.

Ted - Thanks. It's not easy to persevere. Glad you found the info on photo placement interesting.

Gail - Hi, Titusville. St Pete is still here, and getting even better every day. Glad you like the new look.

Hi, Ann - as you can see, there's less of me now than when we met in Orlando.

Lynne - You worked hard to earn your designations - you definitely should let people know you have them. Enjoyed reading your connections to Tampa Bay. Any way that helps someone lose weight and inches is great. Thanks for sharing yours.

Diane - You're right. Drag and drop isn't an option - yet.  In the meantime, at least you know how to choose various positions, sizes, wraps andborders.

Matthew - you must suffer the same malady as I do - lack of time to experiment. My older son always tells me to make the time to play with programs.

Nancy - You're welcome. Hint is - do whatever makes sense for you and what you will stick to. For me it was this Medi Weight Loss (search for that on google), but that's certainly not the only route to success. It took me over two months to discover when in my day I would exercise - first had to try all the times that didn't work. I hated to give up my early mornings, but that's the only time that worked for me.

Missy - I hope it helped. We all do want more recognition on the search engines, and it's well worth the extra couple of minutes to fill in the title and description.

Monika - Thanks. I appreciate your comments.

Debbie - Wow! I started in early December - it was Medi Weight Loss that worked for me - you can check it out on google and see if there's one in your area.

Renee - Thanks. I love it when I go for my weekly salmon lunch at Parkshore Grille and the servers now say - Yes, I know - you want it naked!

Will - Yes, you'll need to experiment. I can't help you with those. 

Linda - hope the information helped to solve your problems.

Bridget - Thanks for the encouragement. 5:30 am is the only time that works for me as well.

Brad - Mmm, thanks for the big hug ... and for all the congratulations.

Dan - hello and you're welcome. I haven't had time to figure out Style either.

Patricia - Thanks so much. If you need more information on photo placement, check out some of the blogs that Krystal Kraft wrote.

Sam - Thanks. You know you're always welcome - we've learned from each other for some years now.

Bill and Barbara Jo - No question that it gets harder to lose as you get older. If you need encouragement, search the blogs on Active Rain for Naked Diet and you'll see some before photos. I did it on a doctor's Medi Weight Loss diet - check google to see if there's one in your area.

Chuck - yup, that's how. You're welcome.
