Float Image is similar to Float Callout but apply directly to the images (doesn’t require you to wrap it in a callout). Currently it uses image caption to identify how you want to float it, but in the future I intend to make it work with anchor tag # as well.

How to Use / Basic Syntax

  1. Add your image (either internal or external) as per normal
  2. Add left or right to the image caption (similar to markdown display text i.e. |) e.g. ![[image.jpg|right]]

You can still specify image width per normal if you desire, just make sure the width is the last syntax before closing bracket ]], e.g. below


Here’s an example markdown

Additional Controls (and Notes)

Apply to Live Preview

By default, if you only specify either left or right, Float Image will only work in Reading View. If you want it to also work in Live Preview, prepend float- before the left or right e.g. ![[image.jpg|float-right]]

Note on Editing in Live Preview

In previous version of Float Image, editing text next to it was quite janky. I’ve improved it a bit (for float-right at least). For float-left you may still find selecting and navigating the text (up and down) still not possible.

To edit, it’s better to navigate using keyboard (from the top or bottom) instead of mouse/trackpad. Even better, use Source Mode to edit.

External Images

Technically, the image float positioning can work with external link images but it is currently not aesthetically optimised (in term of gaps and other adjustment).

I will update this in the future. But if you must use it now, the syntax is ![<position>|<size>](<imagefile.jpg>) and ![float-<position>|<size>](<imagefile.jpg>)
