In the last months we have been trying hard to accomodate what our users feel are the most needed features in our service. We may have even talked to you about this. If not, maybe we will in the future.
Back on track! We made some big changes to how images are inserted with Zemanta!
Check this screencast to find out more or resort to the text below!
Images get inserted to blinking cursor position:
Inserting an image with Zemanta was pretty limited before. It got inserted to the top right of the page and it was pretty hard to move it around. The new feature includes “Microsoft-Word-like” functionality: the image now gets inserted wherever you put your cursor first.
More than one image:
As you used to insert images, the latter one always replaced the one inserted before. From now on, every new inserted image gets inserted after the previous one. This feature coupled with images getting inserted to cursor position makes for a powerful image-insertion beast.
Every time you insert an image a new settings box appears over the gallery. Here you can choose how the image is positioned (left, right or centered), you can change the caption or remove it all together. You can even change the size of the image manually. Wow? All the changes can be seen in the editor as you’re working.
When you’re happy with the result, click done and continue being great. If you feel like going back and changing the image, just click on it in the editor and the settings box will appear again. Cool, right?
Attention! Like some other features, these will only work on WordPress.com and all supported versions of WordPress.org. But be sure to find them on other platforms soon enough!
