Images can be added to any text box in LibGuides or to the text section of other kinds of boxes.
Your LibGuides account includes an Image Library to which you can upload images to use in your guides.
Information on this page covers:
the Maximum width that will fit in a left column box is 180 px
the maxium width that will fit in a center column box = 420 px
NOTE: If you upload a new image but do not want to insert it immediately, just close the Image Manager box and hit cancel. The uploaded image will remain available in your Image Library for later insertion into this or other guides.
In addition to entering the Image URL, there are several settings you can adjust when you add images to a LibGuides text box.
If you leave the image aligment as "Not Set" (the default), any text you type will begin to the right of the image aligned with the bottom of the image (as shown here). If it is long enough to wrap, it will continue underneath the image. This setting is the one to use if you want to add the button to the middle of your text. If you want a display image, use Left-Aligned
If you want the text to appear next to the image, change the alignment drop-down menu to left. It will then look like this. Notice that there is also more space between the picture and the text. This is controlled by changing the horizontal space setting from blank, or 0, to a certain number of pixels. (Here it is set to 3.) Again, if the text is long enough it will wrap underneath the image.
Alternatively, you can change the alignment drop-down menu to right. It will then look like this. This example also uses a wider horizontal space. (10 pixels instead of 3.)
