Images Not Showing up the right size?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have uploaded 3 images to sit at the top of three colums that I have on my home pages, but the images aren't stretching to the full length of the colum.

 

I have uploaded the page I am testing so you can see what I mean.

The images in question are the three that sit just below the Titles of the colums. i.e. the square people pictures are the ones I am referring to. The width of these are 260px which is the same with as the ones that sit just above them i.e this one: http://tinyurl.com/68x2hjw for example. However on screen they do not look the same size.

 

My css file is below (I am in the proccess of getting rid of a lot of the junk in it :blink: )

Can someone tell me why I am having this problem.

 

Thanks

Your image is 260px wide and your column 282px - either make you column less wide or your image bigger.

 

If you add a distinct background color to your #content and a different one to .three_columns (not for styling, just inspection) then you can better see what you have going on there.

Bingo,

 

That solution actually came to me on my way to work this morning. I got confused because in with firebug it said one of my other images was 260px and that image seemed to span the width I wanted, but on closer inspection, I was looking at the wrong dimensions.

 

Thanks
