The image you see above is set using a featured image (using the native WordPress functionality). It’s really easy to do and is a great way to set the tone of your image. We also style them a little differently to tie everything together nicely.
Here’s an image that’s floated to the left. This lets the text wrap neatly around the image. You’ll want to make sure you have enough content next to it, otherwise, you might end up with a layout that feels a little squished.
If you have a large chunk of text, using left or right aligned images like the ones showing on this page can be a great way to break up the wall of text.
You’ve probably seen formatting like this on popular news sites and blogs – when you get this theme, you’ll be able to use this same advanced layout features for yourself.
You can also see we’ve included an image that’s floated to the right. That can be useful too. By the way, the captions are totally optional – we just included them so you can see how they look.
As you know, WP Medium is super fast – but you’ll need to make sure the images you use aren’t too big! If you’re going to add images, take the time to make sure you resize them and run them through an optimization tool like imageOptim.
You can set up a plugin like WP Smush to do that last step for you automatically.
