    You mean in the main content area? Or the image will sit between the nav column and the main content area?

    In the main content area. I want the store image to the right of the navigation bar I have on the left. Notice what it does when I try and put anotehr table to the right?

    Here is my current code.

    I'm not 100% what you're asking but I can tell you this.
    You can control how wide a column is using width="<size in pixels>" (ie <td width="100">)
    Or you can use percentage <td width="50%"> which means this column will 50% of whatever the over all table width is.

    You can also use the width attribute in the table tag as well <table width="300"> which makes it more effective to percentage with the cell/column width.

    However if the image going into a cell in that column is wider then the cell will become that width.

    Have you looked into using CSS for the design? You really should.

    Would the 3 collumn CSS design work the best for me? Also how do I make it so it fits all resolutions instead of being to large for a monitor?

    Three of two, I'm sure it would.
    You can use % for widths and heights in CSS too.

    You should consider learning CSS (especially if you're gonna switch this site to it (it's not like you have to)) - it's great. I haven't had to design a proper layout like this in, ever. I just do random stuff, like... this (try doing that with tables ;)). CSS rocks, I know that much.
