Issue inserting images: Change Hub capsule layout for more options

    Whenever I try to insert a graphic into my article, I can only insert the graphic at either the very top or the very bottom but no where else. I can't insert the graphic into the body of the the text. I was able to do this before on a previous article I had written but all of a sudden I can no longer do this. When I click on "Insert Capsule Here" it jumps to the top of the article. I tried using the up and down arrows to move the graphic but when I click on the up and down arrows the Capsule will only jump to the top or bottom of the article and no where else. Also when the graphic is inserted in the top or bottom of the article, the graphic is blown up way out of size. I tried this using Firefox and Chrome but this didn't have any affect. This is very puzzling.

      Sounds like you may have written all of your text in one single text capsule. You'll need to break it up into multiple text capsules (we recommend breaking it up by paragraph with descriptive subheadings) in order to insert image capsules within the text.

    I've periodically experienced this kind of symptom everywhere on the site, even on the accounts page.

    Try the close/reopen browser thing first and see if that fixes it.

    yes, I have closed my browser, tried Firefox, cleared the cache, still didn't work. Went back to Chrome, cleared the cache, still having an issue. So I don't know what to do from here. sad

    Thank you Christy, I didn't think of that, duh! I'll try that and see how it goes. Thank you for the response.

    Well the insertion part worked fine, but I'm still getting the error where when I insert the graphic (jpeg or gif), it blows it up way too big. Also it will only allow me to insert the graphic at the top or bottom of the given capsule. I can't embed it within the text. But again the bigger issue is the graphic is blown way up no matter how small I make the original. Any ideas?

      On HubPages, you cannot use Gif images.  Also, the minimum size now is 520 pixels wide or 260 pixels wide if the photo is floated to the right of a text capsule.  The only way to make a picture smaller is to use an editing tool and surround the photo with enough white space to equal the acceptable dimensions.

      To "embed it within the text" you click on the → to float it to the right and then click on the ↑ or ↓ to move it to the correct text capsule location.

        Thank you Writer Fox. When I click on the up / down arrows it only moves to the top or the bottom of the particular capsule. Also it only moves it to the right so there's no way to place it on the left side of the article apparently. Which I like doing to offset the jpeg that's on the right in the previous capsule. But your information has been very helpful, thanks a lot!

          You're welcome.  The picture can only be floated to the right on HubPages.  There are no other options for that.  Also, when you upload a graphic that is 900 px X 1100 px, the system will resize it to 520 px wide and the proportionate length (635.55 in this example) so that the image is not distorted.

      It sounds like you may be using a low resolution image.
      In the FAQ we suggest an image at least 1000 pixels wide as a good minimum.

      If you break your text into multiple capsules, then you can put image capsules between them and have far more layout options.

      @Writer Fox has some other good suggestions about your photo capsule layout options.

          Glad the problem is solved.  Welcome to HubPages!

    I sort of found a fix for this. I found if I use a really big graphic (900 x 1100 for instance) it looks fine in the article. But it would be great if I could make it a little bit smaller. Is there a way to re-size graphics?

    Material can also be organized under "Display Options" on the far right when in edit mode. (Just thought I'd add that.)
