Autosize text boxes

Hi all

I'm a bit of newbie when it comes to this so I hope this isn't a silly question but how can I make text boxes auto size to their content? I understand the width will remain the same as all the other boxes in that column but its the height that seems to be a problem. I have a number of text boxes that contain images and affiliate ads and there always seems to be a gap around the image or ad. I've tried removing padding and borders but it doesn't seem to make any difference - there is always a gap at the top and bottom of the image.

Thanks in advance.
