Using images on sites helps make the content engaging and eye-catching. But how do we position images in our WordPress posts? This article will show you how.
If you are using the Classic Editor, see our How to Align Images in WordPress article.
Once you’ve uploaded and added an image into your content, you can change its alignment.
There are a few alignment options you can choose from.
Near blocks will automatically be positioned to the left of the image.
Wide Width alignment takes the image and stretches it out past the current text, while still leaving some room on the left and right. You can select this alignment by clicking the alignment icon, then selecting Wide Width from the drop-down.
Full width is similar to Wide Width, except that it does not leave any room on the left and right. When Full Width is selected, the image is stretched to meet the end of the page on both the left and right sides.
