I am playing around with replacing my rating of words [3.5 of 5 stars, etc] with a little icon of a lightsaber or half a lightsaber. I've got the picture sized correctly but when I add them to my little blurb, they are slightly higher than the text and it off centers everything. I've tried playing around with the Advanced settings in the picture adding thingy, but it doesn't actually seem to do anything, ie, the vertical spacing options.

 

Just wondering if some of you more creative people who have played around with this type of thing could give me some pointers?
