It did shrink, but by the same principle, I didn't want it to smoosh those first few paragraphs way too narrow, which would just have made them painful to read. So it was partly by design, even if I didn't make enough of a fuss over how much shrinkage I wanted out of it. (You can adjust that by adding or subtracting from your invisible text line.)

In a perfect world there'd have been no gap between the table with two cells (paragraphs vs. image) and the table with just one cell (the bottom paragraphs spanning the whole width of the page). It'd look like an encyclopedia entry or something, perfectly margined. Only once you let images get too big, the paragraphs adjust to be longer as compensation for having less breadth, and you end up creating that gap anyway. If I'm making sense here.

It's not perfect yet (if perfection can even be achieved with these very rudimentary tools), but I've been practicing for a few months and I've gotten it to a presentable level, anyway, I think.

Basically, you want a bit of shrinkage unless you're using your image manipulation programs and online image uploaders to re-size your images manually. Most of them at full size will be too big for your side-paragraphs to look natural and easy to read.

Makes sense my dude. The issue at the moment had been combating image shrinkage, which was why I thought it was strange that the example you posted had an image with a reduced size. The CS looks sharp, regardless.

I do tend to use the image resizing outside of the site, but that was due to old habits of the past website I rped on having the text wrap function by default. This other way (or combining both) could be quite beneficial :3

Yeah, whip up a very basic example, including [color=2e2c2c]_______________________your long string of space-less text hidden somewhere on the image side_______________________[/color], and you'll see that you can adjust shrinkage with the width of this line. Add more underscores to make it wider, take them away to make it shrink more.

Kinda annoying knowing that mobile probably ruins it, but with a bit of liquid design you'll be able to make it look good on most if not all desktop resolutions.

I know it's been a bit, but I just wanted to show off a little bit of what I've learned from this thread after I gave it a good whack on one of my character's posting formats :3
