Welcome to image alignment! The best way to demonstrate the ebb and flow of the various image positioning options is to nestle them snuggly among an ocean of words. Grab a paddle and let’s get started.

On the topic of alignment, it should be noted that users can choose from the options of NoneLeftRight, and Center. In addition, they also get the options of ThumbnailMediumLarge & Fullsize.

Image Alignment 580x300

The image above happens to be centered.

Image Alignment 150x150The rest of this paragraph is filler for the sake of seeing the text wrap around the 150×150 image, which is left aligned.

As you can see the should be some space above, below, and to the right of the image. The text should not be creeping on the image. Creeping is just not right. Images need breathing room too. Let them speak like you words. Let them do their jobs without any hassle from the text. In about one more sentence here, we’ll see that the text moves from the right of the image down below the image in seamless transition. Again, letting the do it’s thang. Mission accomplished!

And now for a massively large image. It also has no alignment.

Image Alignment 1200x400

The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

Image Alignment 300x200

And now we’re going to shift things to the right align. Again, there should be plenty of room above, below, and to the left of the image. Just look at him there… Hey guy! Way to rock that right side. I don’t care what the left aligned image says, you look great. Don’t let anyone else tell you differently.

In just a bit here, you should see the text start to wrap below the right aligned image and settle in nicely. There should still be plenty of room and everything should be sitting pretty. Yeah… Just like that. It never felt so good to be right.

And just when you thought we were done, we’re going to do them all over again with captions!

Image Alignment 580x300
Look at 580×300 getting some caption love.

The image above happens to be centered. The caption also has a link in it, just to see if it does anything funky.

Image Alignment 150x150
Itty-bitty caption.

The rest of this paragraph is filler for the sake of seeing the text wrap around the 150×150 image, which is left aligned.

As you can see the should be some space above, below, and to the right of the image. The text should not be creeping on the image. Creeping is just not right. Images need breathing room too. Let them speak like you words. Let them do their jobs without any hassle from the text. In about one more sentence here, we’ll see that the text moves from the right of the image down below the image in seamless transition. Again, letting the do it’s thang. Mission accomplished!

And now for a massively large image. It also has no alignment.

Massive image comment for your eyeballs.

The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

Image Alignment 300x200
Feels good to be right all the time.

And now we’re going to shift things to the right align. Again, there should be plenty of room above, below, and to the left of the image. Just look at him there… Hey guy! Way to rock that right side. I don’t care what the left aligned image says, you look great. Don’t let anyone else tell you differently.

In just a bit here, you should see the text start to wrap below the right aligned image and settle in nicely. There should still be plenty of room and everything should be sitting pretty. Yeah… Just like that. It never felt so good to be right.

And that’s a wrap, yo! You survived the tumultuous waters of alignment. Image alignment achievement unlocked!

    Did you notice different sidebars on different pages? With that option i can have right content at right place, I will be gutted if i was forced to display same sidebars on all pages. I must say the small but important things were taken cared of nicely in this theme.

      Yes, different sidebars on different pages is sensible. But did you notice this comment form below? It lets me enter my comment first and then the formalities like asking my name, email address, etc comes. It sound like a small thing but see how it affects the psyche of your readers who uses that form to post a comment.

    The smartest element on the website is the tabbed widget in the sidebar which displays popular posts, latest posts and tags, on post detail page you can also display Related posts in that same widget. It helps me showcase posts with different filters and because they are in tabs it helps me save a lot of verticaly space in the sidebar. Smartly done i must say!

      The sidebar of this theme is so prominent that it is the best place to show advertisement banners, if you plan to monetize your blog with different advertisement banners, WP Premium is the WordPress theme you should go for.

    Along with the text content, media content like images and vidoes are also presented beautifully with this theme, i can have images in my post the way i want it and it just looks awesome.

      I just love the author profile section in the sidebar, that allows me to write about myself and it helps me personally connect with my readers, also the section with all my social media profile links is also strategically placed and beautifully designed.

    This seems like a cool looking WordPress theme for starting a personal blog, the focus is on the content and i am loving the typography of the blog. Readability is what bloggers look for and in my opinion this WP Premium theme is a perfect match.
