The perfect web design platform for the minimal + chic influencers & businesses.
Squarespace’s dedication to improving and innovating the platform is impressive. As a Squarespace Circle Member, I am so excited to be at the forefront of what’s new. Even if Circle members can’t discuss it, Squarespace works to improve and innovate its platform to better work with and empower the small businesses that rely on it. So refreshing!
Today, they’ve announced the latest launch, Image Block 2.0. For now, it’s only available for use on Pages (not posts, sidebars, footers, etc). Image Block 2.0 allows you to add modern & on-trend styling to your image directly while editing the page, decreasing design time and page-loading time. (And bonus) acts as an added boost to SEO (since it’s live text). You can add an Image Link to each one, this will produce either a button or a clear link over the image.
Where to Find & Start Using
Create or edit an existing Image Block > In the IMAGE editing dialog window, you now see Design.
Six options for image blocks.
1. Inline (Original)
