How to position images to attract more viewers to your articles online
The how to guide on capsule usage & page positioning
Procedural Steps to get started-
1. Make sure to have completed at least three text capsule's to achieve image placement, and overall positioning.
2. Once your capsules are in place, go to your image capsule and locate the arrows on the top-right of it.
- If your having any difficulty understanding what a capsule is, you can watch the video supplied below, you can go to Hubpages Learning Center by clicking the text link from hovering over your hubpages profile link up above, or by clicking the link here as well.
- It will lead to all the info on how to create capsules, and their uses via the links provided there on the Learning Center page.
Here's the video on how to utilize the text capsule

Locating the image capsule
3. Locate the image capsule text icon from clicking the add button, on the left of the screen of your hub editor, this will allow you to instantly create more capsules.
(You can also add a new capsule from the far right of your hub editor screen titled "Add More Capsules".)
The green arrows allow for movement of capsules
Movement of arrows - refer to image supplied above
4. Play with the green arrows towards the top-right of any capsule, simply click them, in order to move any capsules around for better viewing positions.
5. The images can be easily moved around, basically by adding more text capsules, but be mindful of your page spacing, readers can get lost on your page if you add way to many without useful or relevant content to fill in the space.

Additional helpful procedures
6. If you position your capsule correctly, by not spacing things out to far, or to close you may keep your viewers interested in your hubs visual appeal, just be smart on it all with page spacing.
7. The spacing of the text capsules can be controlled within the text area itself, and also be mindful of such, try to hit enter button on your keyboard, towards the end of the text submitted to add space after the text capsule, for the next capsules placement.
8. This will give the appearance of more page spacing, so that the capsule that comes after the text one, will now have a single blank white space area between the text, and the new area you've chose to create via capsule usage (works wonders with spacing images or videos apart from text).
Take your time creating your hub's patience is key
9. Don't rush into things, the beauty of your hubs will come in due time, and with much learned experience, because you may have to get ideas for better effective positioning from expert hubbers (Top hubbers with a hub scores range of 96-100).
10. Make sure you give the reading of other people hubs a try to see both the good, and the bad orientations of hubs, and this will also help you in learning a great deal about where, and how you want yours to look.
