[Blog] How do I make images in a Rich Text Element responsive?

Hey Webflow Community!

I am trying to make the images for the mobile view a bit larger as they are very hard to see at the moment. However, I don’t want images to cover the full width when the blog is read on other devices.

Same goes for video embeds.

How can I achieve that?
Thanks a lot for taking your time.

Best wishes,

Hey @fredj32

You can put some custom CSS code to do the trick.
I added a media-query to apply the properties only on devices with a viewport under 479 px.
Then i bumped up the max-width of the image and videos inside your rich texts. I also added a minimun height on the videos as they can appear a bit squashed.

You can play with the numbers to suit your taste :smiley:

@media (max-width: 479px) {
    .w-richtext figure {
        max-width: 80%;
    .w-richtext figure.w-richtext-figure-type-video, .w-richtext figure[data-rt-type="video"] {
        max-width: 80%;        
        min-height: 7rem;

Hope it helps ! Have a nice day

Hey @jptrinh ,

thank you so much! Where do I enter the code? I put it in body and it didn’t seem to work.

Best wishes,

@fredj32 - Make sure to place CSS inside a style block <style> your css </style>, within an embed.

Thank you, Jeff.
To clarify. Should I add an embed on paste the code there like this?

Not quite. Your CSS needs to be in between the two style tags, replacing the text “your css”.

got it! Thank you so much! Now it works for the images!

Do you know why the code doesn’t affect the video?

Ow that’s my bad I think
On line 8 (in the screenshot), if you change the property max-width with width you should be ok
