We have had changes in mind for images for a long time, but nothing has come together yet. We actually drafted software that converted the images to a slideshow a couple years ago but had trouble making it work on all systems.
I'm thinking that we might connect a change to images with an option that converts the text section, what is now the left column, to a single column format, i.e. full page width. In other words, some profiles would have the two columns as they all do now. But if the editors of a profile put images in the text or otherwise have an especially rich text section, the individual profile could display in a single column.
When I've floated this in various circles there was a lot of resistance and a dozen other ideas were suggested instead. That confused and delayed things.
I should probably propose this optional single column format idea more formally here in G2G.
