the amazon module makes my products look so small on my recent page

Unique Fish Tanks

is there anything i can do to enlarge the product?  or do I just use the picture module and link to the amazon picture that way??

Look what I did on my German page about chef jackets, Joan.

I placed an Amazon module next to an image module with a big product picture. Don't link the big picture, though, because we allow Amazon ads only in our Amazon modules.

You could also add a half-page Amazon module with only a big product picture to spice things up a bit. Then write your product description in a half-page text module next to it.

On the other hand, having a small image might prompt readers to click on the picture to enlarge it. Might be a smart move after all... Wink

I'm surprised that  no one has yet to suggest the easiest and most obvious answer.

Here is an example on a recent page I made: http://wizzley.com/diaries-journals-choices-and-range/

When in the amazon capsule, simply turn to the display type to 'gallery' and then on the right hand side you get the option to display the image as 'big' or 'small'.

Displaying it as big means you can have a clickable amazon product the full width of the page if you wish, or half a page if you put a capsule next to it.

You are of course correct, too, Susannah. But in this case we were looking for a way to keep the ad with the automatic Amazon description intact, and still enhance it with a bigger image.  :)

Ah ok...  that makes sense. Although I've found that people on the net are often very visual, so I like the fact you can just get in their face with these Amazon capsules, and then they can click if they want more information.

well, it looks better using your suggestions and I thank you, but I need help again.  I want the two sponge bob pineapples side by side.  I tried putting a blank text module in there, but it would not keep it.   what can I do to level that out?   ideas?

Fixed it for ya, Joan. I added a space module (50 px) under your Amazon ad to level out the previous 2 modules. Then I played around with the arrows of your 2 half-size pinapple modules until they were next to each other. You're welcome.  Smile

I would mix it up and then test it over a period of time. You can check on the best-converting modules under the Analysis tab on your account page.
