Moving an image
Moving an image can be tricky, because of the way
HTML works. If you have an HTML table that provides structure for the
page, then you can place an image into a table cell and it will stay
there. Otherwise, the picture may appear in a horizontally different
spot from where you intended, depending whether the alignment is left,
middle, or right. Also, if another image or text is placed adjacent to
an image that is not in a table, it may be "pushed" to a different spot
because of the flowing nature of HTML.
However, generally, to move a picture, follow these steps:
1) Select the picture by clicking on it ONCE with your cursor.
2) Cut the picture by clicking the "Cut" button (looks like a pair of scissors) in the editor's toolbar (or Ctrl+X).
3) Position your cursor where you want to place the image, then click the Paste button in the editor's toolbar (Ctrl+V).
Another way to move a picture is to grab it with your cursor and move
it to another place on the page. Simply position your cursor over the
image, then WHILE HOLDING DOWN the left mouse button, drag the image to
a new position.
NOTE: if the page has no table structure to keep the image in place, it
will probably slide to the left or right when you place it. This can be
frustrating to beginners. The solution is to insert an HTML table into
your page to provide some structure to "hang" your image on and keep it
from sliding. See our tutorial on Tables for more help on this topic.
To see the table borders in your page, click on the "view table
borders" button located at the bottom right corner of the page.
