Do you want to align images to the right or left in your WordPress posts? Sometimes you may want to have your images aligned in a specific way on your page. In this article, we will share how to align an image to the left or right in WordPress.

Align Images to the Left or Right in WordPress

Once you’ve added an image in WordPress, you may want to align it to the right or to the left of your content.

First, edit your post or page where your image is located.

Edit Post

Then, you’ll need to click on the image. A set of options will appear at the top of your photo.

Edit Alignment Settings

These options allow you to align the image to the left, center or the right of your content. You also have the option to leave the photo with no alignment.

Align an Entire Image Gallery in WordPress

By default, WordPress image galleries do not have a feature to align it to the left or right of your content.

However, Envira Gallery allows you to align your gallery images in WordPress. (Check out how to add a masonry image gallery in WordPress.)

First thing you need to do is to install and activate the Envira Gallery plugin.

Upon activating the plugin, you should go to Envira Gallery » Add New to add an image gallery in WordPress. (You can learn more about how to create an image gallery with thumbnails using Envira Gallery here.)

After adding the image gallery, you can go to Posts » Add New, or edit an existing post or page where you want to add the new image gallery.

To add the image gallery to your post or page, click on the Add Gallery button.

Add Gallery

You will see a window pop up with your available image galleries created by you. Select the image gallery you want and press the Insert button.

Insert Gallery

Once your gallery is added, you can place it with your text as you need using the Visual Editor.

You can also add an image gallery in the sidebar widget to display your photo gallery in the sidebar, or inside available widget areas.
