Most IE users don't know how to turn off Image Resizing in options so if
you show the pic alone or in a popup window, it will size to fit the
window. That won't work in any other browser, afaik, so you're better
off resizing the pic in irfanview or a similar editor ... you'll be safe
if you make it 640X400. Anything bigger and you will just have to
accept the fact that you really don't have any control over the viewer's
screen resolution.

You could use a smaller size that links to a larger one ... you could
use a script to determine the viewer's monitor resolution and serve up
the correct pic ... it all depends on your motivation and persistence.

the resolution has nothing to do with the available canvas area of the
browser and you can only guess what the canvas area size may be.

thanx for the help and suggestions
i'm surprised to hear that a script can access something like the screen
resolution, but i guess since its more of a hardware resource its not a
security issue.
sounds like it takes some experimentation with different resolutions. what i
found initially, the original pic is a screen capture, shft/prnt scr, and
when reducing resolution the quality just fell apart

image size?

reduce your resolution to the minimum and take another screen cap or
use a program such as the one i mentioned before to resize the image

If you are talking a web gallery, then I suggest Thumbnails,
especially if the size of the original is 100KB+ I use Xnview for my
Thumbnails: http://www.xnview.com . You can see it in action here:

Mind you, I edited the code to coordinate with the rest of that
section of my site.

it applies if the person is using IE, thats why the instruction were
supplied for IE. it would be stupid to supply IE instructions if the
browser in use wasn't IE.

you're a troll.
