Photo placement within a hub

    I am having trouble finding out how to place photos above, below or immediately next to specific sections within a hub.  I know it can be done because I've seen it in other hubs, but I just can't figure out how to do it.  I know that being able to do this would improve my hubs, but I need some help with this.  I'm hoping one of you will be kind enough to play teacher on this one!

    Thanks.

    The trick is to subdivide your text into several text capsules. Once you have done so, you can drop and drag the photo capsules where you want them (or use the up/down arrows). To get them to show on the right of another capsule, place them on top of the other capsule, then click on the right-oriented arrow on the photo capsule.

    As WE said, use the green arrow buttons on each capsule.

    Here is an example from one of my hubs: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0aft3qa1e

      This may make sense to you, but I must be totally dense.  I want to know, step by step, how you go about writing separate text capsules within one hub.  Does that make my question more clear?

        I have tried to explain that just above.

        What WE has said.

        Basically, over on the right, you can add in as many capsules as you wish. You can have ten text capsules if you want. Each capsule is its own entity and can be moved around, up, down, side to side, as you wish.

        Photos can be placed either centrally, or to the right (unfortunately you cannot place two side by side!)

    It's the mechanism of subdividing the text into separate capsules I don't understand.  Are you saying to write a section, close it, then reopen press edit and add more?  If so, I've tried this and it doesn't work.

    I thought the "add" thing showed you where you could add photo capsules, but that doesn't work either. HELP!!

      You need several text capsules (at least two), and then paste or type portions of your total volume of text into each capsule.

      You can create new capsules by letting the cursor slide on the lift side of the hub in editing mode. A new toolbar will appear, enabling you to create new capsules where you want them. Text, photo, video capsules are all available.

    no.
    1- open text capsule and write a paragraph or two. Save. You're done with that one.
    2- open next text capsule and repeat #1 as many times as you need separate text capsules.
    3- next to the capsule where you want to place a photo or video, amazon or ebay capsule, move the cursor on the left of the capsule and click which capsule you want to add.
    4- click the green arrow on your added capsule if you want to move it to the the right or you can keep the capsule expanded for a full image or video.

    The arrows navigate the capsule to where you want it.

      That's what I needed.  I tried it on one of my articles, and it worked beautifully.  Thank you soooooo much!!
