Format Image in the Page

Once you've inserted the image, you can use the Align Left, Align Center, and Align Right in the WYSIWYG to style the image. Align Left will float the image at the left of the Page Content column, and allow text to wrap around the right. Align Right will float the image at the right of the Page Content column, and allow text to wrap around the left. Align Center will float the image in the center of the Page Content column, and text will not wrap around the image.
