Hello Stuart,

Certainly possible. 

  • Widgets → Picture
  • Then you will be offered 2 choices: Upload a new picture or Browse for a picture already uploaded.
  • Select the picture you wish to be placed.
  • To size the picture, drag the small red square at the bottom right hand side and it will proportionally size your image to the chosen perimeter.

Using the Picture Widget

Yes, have tried that but I think the problem might be changing the chosen perimeter, displayed by broken red lines? Is that possible to change or is there a maximum?

Hi Stuart,

You can drag it to the edge of the container it is placed in. 
If the container is too small then you will need to alter the margins of the container.

If you can tell me your domain and page with your picture of your published site then I'm happy to look at this remotely.

Hello Stuart,

Using the Style you have chosen limits the width/size that you can display your images.

The vertical menu styles take about 35% of the real estate of your page. 

A solution which will retain your mobile responsiveness would be to choose a style with a horizontal menu. This does limit the useful number of primary menu items but can be overcome by subsequent utilisation of the flyover menu facility, as I see you have used on some pages. You can customise the flyover menus colour and font.

I suggest using Skyline as it offers this plus it is fully customisable. You can switch styles as a trial without risking losing your current style presentation. Just don't do any saves until you are sure.

In addition to what Gop says, another style you can try is Serendipity located in our Recommended folder. It allows for you to keep a vertical menu but you can adjust the width of the content area as well as the sidebar where the vertical menu is located. This style is also fully customizable and is mobile-friendly.
