The Bootstrap Media Objects like images or videos can be aligned to the left or to the right of some content in an easy and efficient manner.
The Bootstrap Media Objects are used where some data is positioned alongside content to build up complicated and recursive components of the content.
The media object classes available are:

  • .media
  • .media-body

Bootstrap spacing is used to control padding and margin.

Left and Right Alignment:

  • “media-left” class is used to left-align a media object.
  • “media-right” class is used to right-align the media object.
  • “media-body” class is used to place the content.

Syntax:

<div class="media-left">
    <img src="...">
</div>
<div class="media-body">
    Content to be placed 
</div>

The Below program illustrates the left and right alignment:

<body>
    <div class="container">
        <h2>Media Object</h2>
        <!-- Left-aligned media object -->
        <div class="media">
            <div class="media-left">
                <img src=
                    class="media-object" style="width:60px">
            </div>
            <div class="media-body">
                <h4 class="media-heading">
                    Left-aligned
                </h4>
                 
<p>
                    Use the "media-left" class to
                    left-align a media object. Text
                    that should appear next to the
                    image, is placed inside a container
                    with class="media-body"
                </p>
 
            </div>
        </div>
        <hr>
        <!-- Right-aligned media object -->
        <div class="media">
            <div class="media-body">
                <h4 class="media-heading">
                    Right-aligned
                </h4>
                 
<p>
                    Use the "media-right" class to
                    right-align the media object.
                    Text that should appear next to
                    the image, is placed inside a
                    container with class="media-body"
                </p>
 
            </div>
            <div class="media-right">
                <img src=
                class="media-object" style="width:60px">
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Output:


Top, Middle or Bottom Alignment:

  • Similar to left and right alignment media object can be aligned top, middle, or bottom.
  • To aligned media to top, middle or bottom use the following classes – media-top, media-middle or media-bottom class

Syntax:

<div class="media-top">
    <img src="...">
</div>
<div class="media-body">
    Content to be placed 
</div>
