The Photo module lets you insert an individual photo from your WordPress Media Library or a custom URL.
Here are some of the options with the Photo module:
- You can select the photo from your Media Library or use a URL. If the file is from the Media Library, you can select the size of the photo to display.
- You can specify the alignment of the photo within the column: Left, Center, or Right. If you display a caption, both the photo and the caption will be aligned according to this selection.
- You can display the caption of the image and specify where the caption appears in relation to the photo: inside the bottom of the photo on hover or below the photo. If you're getting the photo from an external URL, there's a field for you to enter a caption.
Note: Longer captions are truncated at the end of the first line.
- You can add a link to the photo, with several choices of where the link goes:
- A URL, for example, to another web page.
- A lightbox
A popup where the photo appears in a dark background over the page.
- Photo file, the photo file is displayed by itself.
- Photo page (for Media Library photos only)
The photo is displayed with the header, footer, and sidebar of the website.
- You can crop the photo into several geometric shapes: Landscape, Panorama (longer and shorter than landscape), Portrait, Square, Circle.
- Note that cropping will cut off parts of your photo, depending on the shape of the original photo and the shape of the crop.
- There are the standard Advanced tab features: margins, animation, and showing/hiding on particular device sizes.
Tip: It's a best practice to keep photos to the exact size that you need. Although the photos are automatically sized to fit your display, a larger photo increases page open time.
