Author Posts October 4, 2007 at 8:36 pm #151923 thelondonlibertineMember Forgive me if this is really simple, but I need to create some ‘space’ around my images so that my text isn’t pressed right up against them. I’m sure there is a quick way to do this, but if someone could help out a wordpress virgin – I’d appreciate it. Many thanks.

Are you comfortable with using html and adjusting the margins in the visual rich text code editor? If you are not then what you can do is place each image in a program like microsoft paint and adding a border to it in the same colour as your blog’s background prior to uploading.

Damn! October 4, 2007 at 8:51 pm #152041 judyb12Member @libertine, honestly, that’s probably the best way to do it. A lot of the themes override any padding you add via HTML anyway, so adding it yourself with an image editor will make sure you have the border you want.

Thanks guys :) October 4, 2007 at 9:08 pm #152043 timethiefMember I just looked at your elephant garlic post. The image looks great. Happy blogging. :) Author Posts The topic ‘Text too close to photo?’ is closed to new replies.
