Image Block layouts

Here are examples of each Image Block layout. You can change the layout in the Design tab of the Image Block. As you select a layout, you'll see a preview of it on the page.

Tip: When switching between Inline and any other layout, you'll need to reenter the image text.
InlinePosterCardOverlapCollageStack

Inline Image Blocks display images with optional captions below or overlaying the image.

Examples of Inline Image Blocks, one with a caption below and one with a caption overlay.

Poster Image Blocks display text over images, creating the look of a banner or poster.

Example of a Poster Image Block.

Card Image Blocks display images with text to the left or right, with optional background colors. The text usually moves below the images in smaller browsers and mobile devices, or when Image Blocks are used in columns.

Example of a Card Image Block.

To select which side the image appears on, use the Image Position drop-down menu in the Image Block's Design tab.

Overlap Image Blocks display images on one side with text on the other, partially overlapping the image. Add a background color to the title for a highlighting effect. The text usually moves below the images in smaller browsers and mobile devices, or when Image Blocks are used in columns.

Example of an Overlap Image Block.

To select which side the image appears on, use the Image Position drop-down in the Image Block's Design tab.

Collage Image Blocks display images on one side and text over background "cards" on the other, offsetting and overlapping the image. The text usually moves below the images in smaller browsers and mobile devices, or when Image Blocks are used in columns.

Example of a Collage Image Block.

To select which side the image appears on, use the Image Position drop-down in the Image Block's Design tab.

Example of a Stack Image Block.

Add an image link or button

In the Design tab of the Image Block, you can turn the image into a link or add a button to its layout.

InlineAll other layouts

To turn the image into a link in the Inline layout, add a clickthrough URL.

Keep these tips in mind:

  • Enabling a lightbox disables clickthrough URLs.
  • El diseño alineado no soporta botones.

For all other Image Block layouts, use the Image Link dropdown menu. You can choose from:

  • None - No link
  • On Image - The entire image becomes a link. Add the URL in the field that appears when you select this option.
  • Button - A button appears inline with the text, below the title and subtitle. Customize the button text and add the URL in the fields that appear when you select this option. You can style the button in the Site Styles panel.

Add animations

In the Animations tab of the Image Block editor, you can add animations visitors see when they load or refresh the page. We recommend experimenting with different options to find animations you like.

To add animations:

  1. In the Image Block editor, click Animations.
  2. Select an effect from the Animate Image Block drop-down menu to apply to the image and any text. As you select an option, you’ll see a preview of it on the page.
  3. Para animar la imagen separada del texto, selecciona Personalizada, luego elige las opciones Animar imagen y Animar texto de imagen.

Choose from these animation options for your image, text, or both:

  • Fundido de entrada: El bloque, la imagen o el texto ingresa difuminado.
  • Deslizar hacia arriba: El bloque, la imagen o el texto se desliza hacia arriba.
  • Deslizar hacia abajo: La imagen o el texto se deslizan hacia abajo
  • Recorte horizontal: El bloque o la imagen se carga en capas horizontales.
  • Recorte vertical: El bloque o la imagen se carga en capas verticales.
  • Inclinado hacia arriba: El bloque o la imagen ingresa con una ampliación y una inclinación hacia arriba.
  • Inclinado hacia abajo: El bloque o la imagen ingresa con una ampliación y una inclinación hacia abajo.
  • Foco de ingreso: El bloque, la imagen o el texto aparece borroso y, luego, se hace foco.
  • Colisionar: La imagen y el texto se desplazan hacia dentro desde los laterales
  • Revelar: La imagen y el texto se desplazan hacia fuera desde el centro
  • Deslizar desde la izquierda: La imagen o el texto se deslizan desde la izquierda
  • Deslizar desde la derecha: La imagen o el texto se deslizan desde la derecha

Here's an example of a Collage Image Block using these settings:

  • Animar Bloque de imagen: Personalizada
  • Animar imagen: Deslizar desde la derecha
  • Animar el texto de imagen: Deslizar desde la izquierda

Example of an Image Block with animations.

Add text

After clicking Apply to save the block, click Write a caption hereWrite a title here, or Write a subtitle here to add corresponding text to the image.

For best results, keep text short. Try to limit subtitles to one or two sentences. This maintains a nice balance between the words and the image. It also keeps the text visible on mobile devices.

Leyendas frente a títulos y subtítulos

Text fields and style options vary by layout. The Inline layout supports one basic caption, while the other layouts support title and subtitle fields.

InlineAll other layouts

The Inline layout supports a caption:

In the Design tab, select a display option from the caption drop-down menu:

  • Do Not Display Caption - No caption displays unless the image is viewed in lightbox.
  • Caption Below - Caption displays below the image, aligned left.
  • Caption Overlay - Caption displays over the image in a dark gray bar.
  • Caption Overlay on Hover - Caption displays over the image in a dark gray bar when the cursor hovers over the image.
Tip: If you don't see Write caption here, temporarily switch the caption style to Caption Below in the Design tab.

Captions always display in lightbox. Captions don’t display in empty Image Blocks. To add text without an image, use a Text Block instead.

Other layouts support a title and subtitle:

  • Two text fields, one above the other
  • Styles set in Site Styles
  • Alt text must be added manually

Resize the image

You can resize or crop Image Blocks in a variety of ways. Your options depend on the layout.

InlinePosterCardOverlapCollageStack

Inline Image Blocks retain the width of the original image file. If the image file is narrower than the content area, you'll see blank space on both sides of the image. This preserves the original image quality. To fill the blank space and display the image at the full width of the block, check Stretch in the block's Design tab. Stretching an image may affect image quality.

You can also adjust the size and cropping of the image in other ways:

Images in the Poster layout automatically stretch to fill the full width of the block.

There are several ways to adjust the size and cropping of the image:

Preguntas frecuentes

The image is sideways

If the image file is sideways when uploaded, it’ll display sideways on your site. To rotate the image, use the Image Editor.

My images are the wrong colors after uploading

If an image is saved in CMYK mode instead of RGB mode, its colors on your Squarespace site may differ from what you see in the original image file.

Always save your images in RGB or sRGB mode. RGB color mode is a web-safe format, while CMYK is for printing and won't render in most browsers. For more image formatting tips, visit Formatting your images for display on the web.
