How to add padding to article images but not module images

I've adding left-padding to article images so keep text away from the edges, but doing this causes all other images, such as that in the header on the supplied link, to move to the right.

I need someone to help me with the CSS to stop this from happening on the site.

if you instead want all images on the site to have the padding-left of 15px but for the header image not to. Just go into your template file and change the following

<img width="640" border="0" src="/~tekspec/vasarelli/images/stories/wine.jpg">

to

<img width="640" border="0" style="padding-left: 0px;" src="/~tekspec/vasarelli/images/stories/wine.jpg">

This works because the direct style is applied to the element last which overrides the default img class.

rather than adding it to .img add it to its own class

<img class="paddedimage" border="0" align="right" src="/~tekspec/vasarelli/images/stories/bottle-shots/Chardonnay-mv.jpg">

then to your templates css add

.paddedimage{
padding-left:15px;
}

so basically when you add an image that you want padded just add this to the tag

class="paddedimage"

Ok thanks for that it will work however I don't want users of the back end to have to input the code manually.

Is there a way that I can override the css in the header images using your method, rather than the article images?

add padding to

remove
img { border: 0 none; padding-left: 15px;}

Snarfles this solution also works but what about when I need to control these elements differently for IE & FF?

I need to control the padding of the images in this modules using CSS, like jayantc's suggestion only that did not appear to have any effect, any other ideas?

What Snarfles suggested was right!, and it applies to the article images.
In addition, you must remove the img css (img { border: 0 none; padding-left: 15px;}).
Another option, is to put the header image in a div with an id (<div id='header_image'>), and then add to the css the following:
#header_image .image {
      padding-left: 15px;
}
