    Hello all, please visit my blog at http://irishtugofwar.com/
    I have added a post this evening but I am having trouble getting my photos right. See the third photo in my post. The text is not going up the right hand side of the photo. Why is that? I have never seen this before. Is there any way to overcome it? Thanks

    The blog I need help with is irishtugofwar.com.

    Click that image and then click the left alignment icon and the text will rectify.
    Visual ediotor Row 1 icon number 7

    The alignment icons in the WordPress editor are for aligning text; they are not for aligning images. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#alignment They are used to achieve wrapping text around images on either the right or left hand side, or to display an image that’s centered without text on either side of it. If the text beside the images does not occupy the same amount of space that the image beside it does then the text wrapping will continue and the images and text that follow will have a staggered appearance.

    • Align-left means position left, with the rest of the content wrapping around the right side of the image.
    • Align-right means position right, with the rest of the content wrapping around the left side of the image.
    • Align-center means position center, with no wrap-around (= the rest of the content below the image).

    If for example you want two images to be side by side on the same line start by setting the alignment of both images to left. http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/image-alignment/

    To prevent the staggered effect what you do is insert the following snippet of code into the HTML editor after each image/text pair:
    <br style=”clear:both;” />

    Thanks for your reply. I tried that but the test still does not allign on the right hand side of the photo. It went under the photo.

    I see that now. What I would do is edit the post and click icn 8 in Row 1 and center the image.
