Hi Rory, you will need to supply relevant css/html if possible. Check the Markdown cheatsheet for how to present.

What are you applying the margins too?

I solved it...

Values in a declaration for 'img.profile-picture' were overriding any margin values I was trying to put in a declaration for '.profile-picture'

I changed removed the 'img' from the declaration higher in the CSS so that both declarations were for the same class '.profile-picture'.

Thanks for your replies.

Great, glad you solved your problem. Just remember the magic quote when it comes to problem solving: "Code (not a picture) tells a thousand words".

Hi Rory,

I especially would like to ask you if you could and would like to share your code and explain how you solved it, as I'm stuck with almost exactly the same issue.

I'll open a question about it, but if you pass by, and would still like to, I'd really appreciate your sharing your code!
