Image and media components for

There are several ways to display images and media at Learn more about the media slider, gallery and video component, as well as images.

Using images

Images are used to visualise text and draw the reader in. There are two image components: Single image and Image with text component

Example of single image sizes
Article pages have three image sizes: Medium, Large and Extra Large

Single image

A Single image component can be used to add an image between text paragraphs. This component does not include any text, only the image and a caption (if needed).

On article pages, images have three size options: Medium, Large and Extra Large. The image on the right demonstrates the differences between the sizes. 

Below is an example of a single image with caption.
