LinkedIn posts (short-form) do not allow any formatting. You have to simulate it with text characters, e.g., use hyphens for each line of a bulleted list, or add your own numbers to the start of each line of a numbered list.

LinkedIn articles (long-form) do allow text and image formatting. In the horizontal menu at the top of an article being edited, you can choose:

  • Heading 1 (large), Heading 2 (medium), or Normal (small)
  • Bold
  • Italics
  • Underline
  • Numbered list
  • Bulleted list
  • Quoted excerpt
  • Link

You can insert the following:

  • Image — drop or upload
  • Video — YouTube, Vimeo, and more
  • Slides — SlideShare, Prezi, and more
  • Links — Twitter, Instagram and more
  • Snippet — of code

Images can be formatted by size and location on the page:

  • Locate image to the left of the text
  • Small-size image with no text next to it
  • Medium-size image with no text next to it
  • Large-size image with no text next to it
  • Locate image to the right of the text
