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!
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.
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!!

As much as I caution new hubbers to avoid adding too much blank white space in-between capsules, I've recently realized that photo capsules and text capsules immediately following seem squeezed together pretty tight, and it might look better to give a single line of blank space between (at the end...

I am still getting full-width Google ads in the middle of my pages, messing up the layout.The impact of this is that it looks like the Hub is only a few paragraphs long, and readers are unlikely to scroll down far enough to find the full-width ad and the text below it.This can't be good for Adsense...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. Will these links survive when hubs are selected and moved to the niche sites?

A very kind soul noticed a month ago that I need to learn how to break up my text with photos or something between the paragraphs when my text is long. She explained how to do it. I tried and couldn't grasp it. Then I misplaced or accidentally deleted her email -- so I haven't...

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...
