(No, I didn't search to see if this had been previously discussed.... ;o)

Wouldn't it be better if images were resized so that they fit the available space? Take a look at "Oh deer, Oh deer". One has to scroll to see the entire image.

Yes. It has been discussed, and I think there is a technical difficulty if the image is hosted 'off-site'. I have to say that the deer shots displayed without scroll bars for me. What screen resolution are you using?

I think the short answer is, "yes it would be better."

Short answer, yes it would be better....

But the real answer is, it can't.

The size of the PhotoCamel "screen" can be a bazillion different sizes, based on the size of your particular monitor resolution, and the size of your browsers window (some maximize the browser, others do not).

I use 800pixels on the long side (usually horizontal), but 750 might be better for most.

Yes, I'm trying to keep it to 700 myself, or 750. Will work on a FAQ.

I should have added the reason I use 800 is because that is what PBase uses as the "Large" size image. If you post a larger image to PBase, they will make large, medium, and small "thumbs" of it...and you can keep the large size as the "original".

PBase doesn't have a wide "avatar" area on the left like PhotoCamel. Not complaining, just pointing it out.

Yes, it's been brought up before. It stands out even more if there are a number of images and you have to scroll all the way down to scroll back and forth and then scroll up to see an image, then scroll back down and adjust the picture, doing this for each image sometimes. Since I use Mozilla if the image is of interest enough that I want to see it, I just right click on the image and select View Image. This opens up that image in it's own page and I can use the page scroll bar to scroll if I need too. I don't know why this forum software is different from most of the others that use a page scroll bar rather than a inner window scroll bar. At least you don't have to scroll back and forth to read text that has gone out past the edge because of the imgage being wider than the screen. So that's one good thing.

Mike
