To allow an image to display wider than a central page column, add the word fullwidth to the end of the alt-text for that image, with a space in front. Don't worry - the word 'fullwidth' is stripped out by the theme, so it won't affect your SEO. This works in pages, blog articles and product descriptions (except if the product page right-hand column mode is selected).
