Can you put picture capsules side-by-side to make 2 columns of pictures in a Hub?
I know you can put a picture capsule to the right of a text capsule. I can also but an Amazon capsule next to another Amazon capsule or eBay capsule. Why can't I put 2 picture capsules side-by-side? I would like 2 columns of pictures rather than 1 column of full width pitcures.
It does not appear to be possible to do this using the picture capsule. You can only right-align the capsule, and at full width, with multiple pictures, it puts one on top of the other in a column. Since you can't put capsules side by side, it won't work with two individual capsules. I thought maybe a table, but it doesn't seem to take HTML code in the cells, so you couldn't pull a picture in from a different location.
I don't think it's possible to do that - it would be a nice feature to have for certain hubs though.
You do not have the option of making two columns with the photo capsules. They can only be full width or right aligned.
When it's important to show two pictures side by side, I have put them into a MS Word document and converted it to a picture. It takes some tweaking, but it can be done.
You could also do it in a photo editing software, but neither method is the most elegant way of getting the job done.
I agree with Stephanie. When I want two pictures side-by-side I use MSPowerPoint.
Make sure that if you use someone else's image that you have the right to alter the image. If it says no derivitives, you may not alter.
But otherwise, put the two photos side by side in PowerPoint and save the two as one picture. Then you can use this one picture in full width -- it will look like two pictures side-by-side.
Remember to add the source to BOTH images in the "Source" box when writing your hub. And don't forget to acknowledge use of the pictures with both photographers.
Doing this is exactly like making a PowerPoint slide for use in your hub.
Hope this helps.

I recently filled in a survey on how to improve HubPages but forgot to mention a very important design issue which has been bothering me for a long time.When a text capsule is very long, I like to turn it into 2 adjacent capsules so it works like 2 columns. Easier to read, right? But every time I...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

It came to a need again that I absolutely wanted to have some pictures to be displayed side by side, not that either one under the other with the pics too big than necessary, or have to create a pic with two pics in it, or just display them on one side leaving the other side half or so empty which...

How do you put a text capsule or a link capsule under the comments capsule?I have seen several hubs recently that have these capsules under the comments capsule. But when I insert either of these capsules, I cannot move them underneath the comments capsule. I like the idea of being able to put them...
