Images

Adding images to your AlbanyWeb website helps it be more eye-catching and professional looking.

Image options

There are several different possibilities for how your web pages display the images on them.  The settings you have on your site get chosen when we work with you to design your site.

  • The simplest and often best option is for the images to be in a fixed position on each page.  This gives consistency between pages, it works reliably on different screen sizes, and it's less work for you when editing.  Typically images appear below the title at the top right hand corner, with the text flowing around it.
  • The alternative is that each image is positioned manually.  This gives you complete control, but it can be more fiddly to get it exactly right.

The default setting is for fixed position images on your blog posts and manually positioned ones on your basic pages, however it might be different on your site.

It doesn't matter if you aren't sure which setting you have - the instructions below will help you work it out.

Overview of stages

The pages in this section will guide you through the steps.

  • Prepare images
  • Upload images
  • Position images (if the manual positioning setting is enabled for this page on your site)

I don't really understand how this all works

Images can be the hardest part to master when editing your own website.  If you find you are struggling with preparing your images before uploading them,  contact us for a support request, and we can do the hard work for you.
