Wrapping Text Around Images

The <img> tag is used to display images on a webpage. You can use the img tag to display images, animated gifs, icons, logos, and buttons, bullets, arrows and other graphic or navigation elements.

An img tag creates an inline box. This means the the browser renders the image along with any other inline elements (like text) from left to right, top to bottom. By default the baseline of the image is placed on the same baseline as the text.

However you can set the align attribute to bottom, middle or top to change where the baseline of the image will be located relative to the baseline of the text.

The align attribute is used to control the alignment of the image. The image above has align="left", while the image below has align="right".

Note how the text wraps around the image. If you don't like the layout of the text wrapping, with align="right" you can use the <br clear="right" /> tag to clear the text wrapping. With align="left" you can use the <br clear="left" /> tag to clear the text wrapping. Or you can use <br clear="all" /> to clear any previous align setting.

In the text and image shown above, after the first paragraph of text, I didn't want the remaining text to wrap to the left of the image, so between the first and second paragraphs, I used the <br clear="right" /> tag to clear the text wrapping.
