When we add images to a WordPress Post we can change the alignment, alt text and sizing of the images.
Use the Image Edit Screen
Click on the image once it’s been uploaded to bring up the Image Edit screen. Use Center when you want the image be displayed front and center. By selecting Left or Right alignment, you’ll have the text wrapped around the image.
Other Image Editing Options
You can also use this screen to add a URL to the image (this is great for affiliate links). I also use this screen to check the image title, alt text and captions to make sure that I have keyword phrases there. This will increase the SEO friendliness of my post overall with keywords in these “hidden” locations.
Images can effect both post SEO and the reader friendliness of your posts so use them wisely in your blog posts to maximize your blog’s effects!
