There are, of course, advanced formatting options--which is what this article is about.
The most basic of which is sizing. Sometimes an image in the Images & Logos section will be too large to fit inside the text-box provided for the homepage. In this instance, you will go to the second tab on the pop-up, entitled “Appearance”. In this box, you will be provided with adjustable Dimensions for the image. The image needs to be smaller than 600 in the first box, so always be sure to at least reduce the image size to those dimensions. Once you enter a dimension in the first box, the second will automatically adjust to match the proportions.
In this case, I chose to resize the image to 200 x 192. On the “Appearance” tab, you can also play with spacing and alignment.
Let’s say we want to put the image on the left-hand side of the text, but also give it enough space vertically and horizontally to be easy to read. You can do the former by adding “vertical” and “horizontal” space.
In this example, I entered “10” in each, which should add just enough of a border and not take up too much space. I am also going to align the image to the left of the text.
By editing the formatting this way, here is how the image will look next to the text:
As well as on the site itself:
Of course, there is plenty of room to play around with editing your images to make sure the formatting is exactly how you want it. Each site is unique, so you have free range to make yours completely custom.
