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.

Hi, Karen - I find some posts months later, and they are as good as when they were new.

I had forgotten how to do this. Thanks for the text and photo explanation. I could not get the video up on my iPad on another post.
