How To Add Image In Content Editor Web Part

How To Add Organic Search Traffic

Adding an image to content is one of the most common ways to add rich media to your website or web part. You can insert, edit, and apply images to various content types- such as pages, blogs, announcements, etc.

You can also create new content types with embedded pictures or use existing ones. It is best to start off by editing an empty page or web part first and then adding the picture later.

This article will show you how to easily embed an image into any standard SharePoint Online document (page, list, announcement) or web part.

Use CSS to add images to the content editor web part

Never guess at web address

It is very common for users to want to include an image or set of pictures in their article or slideshow. They may need to do this to link to another site, put up a quick picture or statement, or create a meme style picture.

There are two ways to implement this in SharePoint Online. The first way is using the HTML markup directly inside of the content area. This method can be done easily by adding some text and then inserting the image from the browser’s tool bar.

The second way to do it uses a Content Editor Web Part (CEWP) that comes packaged with Office 365. These CEWPs give you more customization options than just including an image, as you can edit the body content and even insert rich media such as videos and documents.

This article will show how to add an image to the Content Editor Web Part in both a simple and complex way. Both methods use basic styles applied through either Adobe Creative Suite or Microsoft Expression Design to make your image look better. You will also learn about setting width and height properties so the image does not run off the page.

Upload your website to Azure or Amazon S3 storage

Another way to add an image to your site is to use one of the many free web hosting services that are designed specifically for creating websites.

Most of these service offer you a dashboard where you can upload files and edit content directly from their interface. Some even have rich editing tools like You may already know some of these sites, but most do not because they are either not known well or they are expensive!

That should change now as we talk about them here!

All of these sites offer great value and feature sets that make it easy to create and update pages with media such as videos and images.

Some of the best ones also include SEO features which help promote your site’s unique content. They are all completely free so there is no need to spend money on additional software or subscriptions.

We will go over each site briefly and why it is worth adding to your collection.

Link your site with a content management system

In addition to being able to upload an image directly from the browser, there are also several third-party tools that make it easy to insert images into pages or posts.

Some of these services offer you free accounts so you can experiment before investing in their paid plans. Some only require limited amounts of money for use, while others do not.

Many of these sites have mobile apps as well, making it even easier to add pictures quickly.

We will talk more about some of these service later in this article! For now, let’s look at how to link your site to Microsoft’s own content editor web part.

Step 1: Login to Your Site As An Administrator

Login to your website using either your domain or an account through a hosting provider like HostGator. Once logged in, go to Settings > Look and Layout. Here you can choose whether to show the “Add new item” button or not for each content type. If you don't see the "add new" option then chances are very good that the content author does not have full permissions to edit the page.

If they do, then you would just need to select the appropriate role for them (Editor, Writer etc) and give them permission.

Edit page source code

Now that you have found your web part, you will need to edit its source code to include an image! To do this, go into the content editor web part area, and then press view source.

This article will go into detail about five different methods to insert an image into content editor web parts. If you find one of these works, great! But if you cannot use any of them, no worries! We have another option for you.

We will also talk about why certain ones may not work for your site, and how to fix that.

Practice editing content editor web parts

It is very common for website owners to add, remove or edit components of their site using the rich text editor (or content editor) web part.

This web part comes standard with SharePoint Online and can be used to create various types of posts including blogs, testimonials, statements, etc.

It is important to note that the look and feel of this web part varies slightly depending on which theme you use for your Office 365 site.

The overall layout and design elements are similar though, so it’s not too difficult to figure out how to customize it. In this article we will go over some easy ways to modify the image settings for this web part.

Removing Images

By default, the content editor web part adds an image after every new paragraph. This looks great when you want to add a picture to make your sentence more interesting, but sometimes you do not.

You may not need to include any images while writing your post, or there could be someone else who would like to see one before publishing. Or maybe you just do not have any pictures yet!

Fortunately, removing these extra pictures is pretty simple. Just click the small down-arrow icon next to the “Insert Picture/Video” button and then uncheck the box that says “Add media after each paragraph.” Then hit save changes and your paragraph will no longer contain a picture.
