It comes in handy if you've added an infographic or a map, as the user can easily navigate the post while reading.

Which image formats are supported?

Supported image formats are as follows:

.jpeg, .gif, .svg, .png, .bmp

Bear in mind that due to security reasons uploading .svg directly to the WordPress media library is prohibited. Nevertheless, you can do it through any relevant plugin such as SVG Support.

What are overhangs?

Overhangs feature allows extending background image (or background color) to the content side indents. You can add overhangs to grids, images, and embeds.

Overhangs are disabled by default (Overhangs > None). Overhangs can be applied to both margins or just to the left or right. The overhang size depends on the selected style's margins (for example, if margins = 0, overhang also = 0). For mobile devices, indents from the post edge are equal to 10 px on both sides. To remove the indents, click Overhangs > Both.

How to set a fullscreen image?

Setka Editor works with post content only.

If your page template enables full-width posts, open a Post tab, select Layout grid > Limited, and set Overhang > Both for image properties.

WordPress:

Images in your post cannot extend beyond your post width determined by your WordPress theme. If your theme setting does not allow 100% width, you can install the Fullwidth Page Templates plugin, manually edit your WordPress theme's CSS files or set respective Post Attributes.

Once you have enabled 100% width, you will be able to set full-screen images.
