That's a good point ... what "would" be a good size of image?  I think we
want to maintain consistency and enforce a specific image size for all pics.
So that the block of information is always the same .. I'm guessing anyway.

Anyone have time to mock up a couple samples at different image sizes so we
can pick the one that looks the best within the block?

Does look odd when the image doesn't fill the box .. looks like that block
isn't centred.  Let's play with the image size, then tweak the box a bit
