Use the Figure Style to Align an Image
- Enter the text on your page.
- Add an image to your page.
- Decide whether you want a caption for your image.
- If desired, add caption text directly after the image.
- If you don't want a caption, make sure the image has no text in its paragraph tag.
Under the Styles drop down, select Figure: Left or Figure: Right as desired.
For most full-width images, just insert them using the Add Media button and don't apply the plain Figure style.

Caption Text Does Not Wrap Properly
If you entered a caption and the text is not wrapping properly, hit the Enter key at the beginning of the caption text.
Bad wrap: caption is still on the side.
Good wrap: after hitting the Enter key, the caption has moved below the image.
