Joomla "Category View" photos don't look clean.

Hello experts, I have a Joomla site with a classes menu for our martial arts school http://strongheartacademy.com/martial-arts-classes.  I was hoping to have the "Category View" look like http://basicpowershell.net/index.php/projects.  I am sure I've set articles up wrong but need your help to make the page photo's and intro text layout cleaner.  I'm using JCE editor to make changes.  Thanks in advance.

Hello Joseph,

Don't use video or gallery in category layout. Use those videos and gallery in Article View. For category view use images only. Make proper use of Read More Functionality in Joomla. I don't think you need to display whole text from article. Just display Article title and image which is set for category layout.

Sorry, I was out on vacation.  I am going to put in static photos today and see if they look better.  I'll also try to figure out how to limit the amount of intro test in the "Category View".  Thanks for the info and I'll work on fixing this page.

How do I limit my intro text?  I don't see an option?  My skill level isn't that great so this is stumping me how to limit the intro text in Category View.
