Center the content in a placeholder?

I am creating a presentation to show some images. I have a placeholder and in the place holder I have added 3 web page widgets which point to my Dropbox URL of the image (I am using the web page widgets to get the images because the images update and I want to pull the latest image).

My place holder is large - set to about the size of the presentation itself so big images will display OK. The problem is with smaller images; they appear starting at the top left of the place holder. Is there a way to have the content in the placeholder centered?

Thanks!

HarvestCFL,

Since you're displaying as a Web Page Widget, the widget is actually just pulling what it sees from that URL, meaning Dropbox is displaying the images in the top left. I don't believe there is a way to change that, but you may want to ask Dropbox's support team if there is something you can do.

I think I might have a solution. I can use an HTML widget and center align the body and then put an <img> in there.

HarvestCFL, you should use the Image Widget and you can specify the alignment of the Image within the Placeholder. http://www.screencast.com/t/1Wl2eXACm

But with the image widget, I was finding it caches the images right? My images update like every 5 minutes so when I cycle through them, I want it to get the latest image. Please let me know if I missed something.
