Inserting images

To insert an image, click the "Insert image" button ()

Images can be uploaded in the following formats: JPG/JPEG, PNG, GIF

Adding a caption

Generally, you will want to add a caption to an image, to explain the image contents. To do so, enter a description in the "Title text" field when inserting an image.


When inserting an image, you can specify its alignment (left, right or centred) by using the "Alignment" dropdown. If you want your text to wrap around the image, be sure to put your text immediately after the image, with no line break.

For example:
University of Oxford logoThe University of Oxford (informally Oxford University, or simply Oxford) is a university located in Oxford, United Kingdom. It is the second oldest surviving university in the world and the oldest university in the English-speaking world.
