Good question. Unfortunately it is not possible to change the width of the columns in the various Layouts manually. The column widths are set to be a certain size, although they will re-size to fit what is in them, and then the other columns will adjust.

Example: If you are using a 3 column layout and put an image into one of the columns that is larger than the column width, the image will fit, and the column the image is in will adjust, and the other two columns will also adjust in size as well.

If you want to use a column layout that adjusts easily, I can suggest the Column Divider widget which is located on the Widgets Sidebar. If you keep your site as an 1 column layout, and drag a Column Divider widget onto the page, you will be able to adjust the size of the widget using the middle line. You can then create more columns by adding another Column Divider widget to one or both sides of the first Column Divider widget.

To add content to the columns, you can then drag the other various widgets (ie Text, Image, etc.) into the various columns.

Hope this helps!
