Tim, when you and Megaman get an idle moment, is there any chance that you could look at photo sizes on the forum? I don't know if the problem is just me, but big pix make all posts below them the same width as they are - which means a lot of sideways scrolling back and forth to read the the posts.

I run Firefox on Win7 on a netbook with a 1024px wide screen, which I wouldn't have thought was uncommon. On the iPad, the whole width of the post initially shows, but the font size is reduced to miniature, so I have to enlarge and scroll sideways again.

thanks

We rely on folk to notice when the picture is too big and to replace it. It can be a right royal pain

There is no "Auto-size" capability built into the Forum software, such as is the case with most web-page builder software (brand-names widely differ here) likely used by most when creating internet content?

You may have noticed that within the past 10-years or so, images and web-pages themselves automatically resize themselves for the screen resolution you are employing on your monitor; this is accounted for by two phenomenon... firstly default selections made at the time of OS install (which may be fine-tuned and modified at any time thereafter by the user) and secondly by sizing elements incorporated within the web-browser which auto-size content to fit the parameters you have earlier selected as defaults in your OS.

Most Office-suites now have this capability too.  I know that stand-alone (off-line) editions of WordPress and similar web-blog content-creator and -readers now have this capability; as do the off-line EPub and MOBI-creators and -readers that I use.

Usually ubiquitous and seamless one only notices that it's not there when it becomes apparent there is a problem.
