Issue with text appearing over images in Gmail on Chrome.

The following issue happens sometimes but not all the time. I can send myself a test and get the text over the image, then with no changes resend and it is fine, even go back to the original mailing and it has corrected itself. Anyone know what is going on here? Is this a gmail issue or issues with my code?

Hey MarketVolt!

Nice to see you on the forums.

I believe this is a coding issue. Rather than controlling the image with vspace and hspace, you should try using nested tables.

Let me know how you get on!
