Graphic Block Options
Add a caption under your image. You can even change the color and size of the text (which we will cover later).
Here's what it looks like by default...
Alignment will position the image in the left, center, or right of it's container.
Notice both the image and text are now centered.
Alt TextYou can add a description of your image in the Alt Text. This allows search engines to index your images, and also describes the image to people who may be vision impaired.
Alt Text also appears when you hover over an image.
Graphic Size You can set the Width or the Height of an image to adjust it's size.
Note: You don't have to change both the width and height. If you change one, the other will scale automatically.
By setting the height to 200 pixels, the width was automatically calculated so the image doesn't distort.
This allows you to switch an image when a user hovers over it with their mouse.See an Example
Change the color behind the image. You could also add a background image (like a texture).
Here a dark red background is applied to the box around the image. All backgrounds are transparent by default.
Click the Font|Color|Size button to change how the description text looks.
You can change the color, size, or font of your text. A preview is shown at the bottom.
By making the text yellow-orange, it shows up better against the dark red background.
Putting The Image Next to textTo put a graphic block next to something we need to have a layout manager around them.
Block 2.1 is around the text block and the graphic block.
Click the edit icon on the layout manager to change it to a columns format.
Select Columns and then press Submit.
The image is now to the right of the text.
PaddingIf we go back to edit the graphic block, we can add padding the the left side.
This provides a nice space between the text and the image. Using padding between images and text will help your website look more professional, and make it easier for people to read.
