    Is it possible to keep my widgets on the side, but to have my photos appear larger?

    Before I added the widgets, the photos were appearing at like 920px. Now they’re much smaller because of the sidebar.

    Any ideas? Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is: originphotoblog.com

    Hi there!

    It looks like we purposely set a bit of a margin on the images to give them some room from the sidebar.

    Do you have the Custom Design upgrade? If so, you can easily change the theme to suit your needs with the following CSS:

    .entry img { max-width: 100%; }

    HI!! Thank you so much for getting back to me! I do have the Custom Design upgrade. Do I just add that CSS to the bottom? If that’s right, I tried that but it’s not the full 1224 pixel width that I know the photo is sized as. Know what I mean? Thank you again for getting back to me.

    I tried it with a new post to double check.

    Unfortunately, with the sidebar activated, the max width of the main content column is 620px. That means that your images can only be displayed at 620px wide. When you scroll down the page, it appears that there is blank space to the right of the images; however, you are actually seeing blank space of the sidebar column. The content in the main column cannot encroach on the sidebar column.
