On the "Online Dating" post your image is only 240px by 180px. On my laptop the container for the image is about 835px when the browser is set to full screen.

In my desktop with a larger monitor the box would be even bigger.

I don't know how you would get a 240px wide image to fill a 835px box without pixelating but you could add the following to the CSS to stretch the image to the full width of the container.

HTML Code:
.post-thumb a {
    overflow: hidden;
.img_wrapper img {
    width: 100%;
Plus the variable width site adds another wrinkle.

Thanks for looking into this. I see what you mean about pixelating.

Is there a way for me to centre the image in the container?
