How do I put the photo on the left side of the text capsule instead of the right side of the text?
I don't think there is a way to do this. I was wondering the same thing and cannot find any hubs that have the photo on the left.
i don't think aligning photo's to the left is possible at the moment although i hope we do get that feature soon.
I have tried several times but it isn't possible, unfortunately. You can put Amazon capsules to the left, but I think that's the only thing besides text. (Correct me if I'm wrong, anyone.)
You cannot. Hubpages haven't found the need to explore differentiation in their capsule placements.
HubPages is completely limited in what you can do to make it look nice. You have to be inventive to make your hubs look even remotely attractive.
If you've got a snipping tool, or screen shot capturing tool, you can create a jpg file that includes white space to the right of your image. And load that as a full width image in your hub capsule
I don't have a graphics program, but it's easy to import your picture into Word, and adjust it to suit. Bring up a Hub alongside your Word page and you can select the amount of white space you'll need to include to the right of your photo, (an easy way is to span the Hub with your hand,and lay that over your word page. Doesn't have to be absolutely accurate, as the Hub capsule will 'auto-fit' to maximum anyway.
To give you an idea of what I'm talking about, take a look at the base of one of my hubs (via my profile page). I've got my profile pic on the left, some type right alongside it, and white space out to the right hand edge.
It's smaller than what could be done, if you wanted to run a bigger pic, but the principle is the same. Just remember to include the text as part of the jpeg file. (You'll see that there's a minor degradation in my example. That could be eliminated if I had a graphics program, maybe you do?)
And of course, you can insert the photo capsule anywhere you want within your hub.
Give it a try, (but keep it to yourself, lol, might be something HP doesn't want to see...)
I actually just did it with my last hub, I have no idea how I did it, and I'm trying to do it with this one I'm writing, but I can't figure out how... its making me so frustrated!

I tried to place a photo capsule to the right of a text capsule.I couldn't find any instructions in the FAQ or a hub that addressed this matter. So I started clicking various up and down arrows and shift right arrows and ended up with a plate of scrambled eggs. I had text boxes out of order, two...

I want to place photos to the left of the text box.I hit the "float right" arrow in the text capsule. It moved right.I have a photo below this text box. If I hit the up arrow, the photo jumps ahead of the text capsule. Is there a way to place the photo to the left of a text box?Thanks...

The biggest issue I have with all capsules having to be full width is that there now seems to be no provision for sidebar content. I've had to eliminate several sidebar text capsules because although they have supplementary information that would be useful for the reader, they just can't be fitted...

Hi everyone, recently, I have been unable to place photo capsule next to text capsule. In the past, I could do it very easily by clicking in the button when editing the photo/video capsule; now all I find are the up and down buttons. Did Hubpages remove this feature, or am I doing something...
