Step 6 Editing Images in your NAIWE Site

DSC02751Updated March 4, 2015 with up-to-date videos.

When you want to add a picture or pdf to your post click the Add Media button on the top left of where you type in your posts text. If you don’t have your picture loaded you should Add the picture to your Media and then you will be able to click it and insert into the post.
Here are some directions on how to achieve text and picture placement that’s attractive and uses space efficiently.

Most people will agree that having the words fill in the space beside a picture creates a cleaner, sharper look. Here’s how to get the look like you see above with text to the right of the picture.  Open the video to full screen for best viewing.

Here’s what you’ll learn.
You can change the placement of the picture in relationship to your text and also change the size of the picture.

This screen shot below shows the options for None, Left, Center or Right in the placement of the picture in relationship to the text.    You can also add a title, text and caption.

This one is marked “left” and the picture will stay to the left of the writing. This picture is one of my favorites.  These are pictures of where I grew up; hundreds of open acres in the mountains of Pennsylvania.

And this one is marked “right.”  The picture will stay to the right of your text.




Here is a video that shows how to edit images when you upload them to word press or for pictures already in your “media file” that you would like to crop or rotate. Open the video in full screen for best viewing.

I hope this encourages our members to try adding some pictures into their profile and posts to see the different effects that can be achieved with these simple image edits.
