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.

While putting up some photos on a hub I am working on, everything working just fine, had uploaded several pix, then suddenly was unable to upload any more. The stuff that is supposed to be on the left was just not there. Am I doing something wrong? Where did it go?

So we don't have the hassle of opening an image processing program every time to compress images and save etc.

How can I put am image in a hub on the left and the text on the right?I often think my hubs look unbalanced with all the images on the right hand side and would like to be able to put an image on the left and the text on the right occasionally, but have not yet found out how to do this.

Hi, I am new to creating hubs. With the capsules, I can get two colums of text. I can also get a column of text to the leftand a picture on the right-hand column.But I have not found a way to get the picture on the Left-hand column and text on the right.Is there some rational to this ?

I have been on Hubpages since last spring. I didn't really start putting any effort into it until August. I now have 26 hubs. I have Google adsense and the Hubpages ad program running, in addition to some Amazon capsules. I've not made much money (less than $20), but I have 4000+ views. Does this...
