When viewing in Gmail Chrome, some images are getting shrunk and squished into the corner. What might be the issue?

I took a look at this and I was able to determine that it was an issue with the TD widths. The right hand TD was too small, so it was shrinking the image to fit. By declaring width=“50%” on each TD(in that section), I was able to get it to respect the proper cell sizes.

I have included the code here with the first such content block already fixed. If you apply width=“50%” to the other TDs that need it, your email should look how you want it to. Let me know if you have any questions!
