I understand how to add images, and I have been able to place them on the right hand side relative to a column of text, but no matter what I try, I cannot get the image to show up on the left hand side with the text to the right.
Is that a limitation of the hubpages editing feature, or am I doing something wrong?
If anyone can explain step by step, I would really appreciate it.
You can't have images to the left of text, plain and simple. The photo capsules don't allow it.
The only way I know would is to paste a photo into a word document, in the left-hand cell of a 2-cell table, type text into the right-hand cell, save page as a PDF and then convert with Photoshop to a .jpeg or .gif. Then upload the .jpeg or .gif Jpeg is better and clearer image.
I don't use this often, because the text is usually too hazy, especially in .gif. I write tables mostly, font size at least 14 points and bold, save as pdf, convert to jpeg and upload.
Similar to what Patty said, you can create what you want in another application Photo(left)|Text(right) and then use a simple program like Gadwin Printscreen to capture the image as a jpg file and upload it as a file.
It's not complicated, but you may have to try to match text fonts.
My preference would be to leave the picture to the right of the text. If you change your text to a picture, you lose the ability to optimize your text for the search engine spiders. They can't read the text off the pictures. All you have left are the titles and captions.
Being able to have an image to the left would be nice, but I wouldn't sacrifice valuable content by making it into an image.
Search engines won't know it exists.
I'd advise against doing so.
Yep.. I would agree Darkside. It would be better to have the content instead of an image.
I agree with the others. Patty, don't do that unless absolutely needed.

I've done this on a few hubs. Maybe it's a good idea because if someone does an image search, the photo with text relevant to the content of the hub can stand out amongst the competition.What do you think?
