Everybody uses different screen resolutions and browser window sizes. If I have my images set to a certain size (i.e. 1024x768) the images may not fit in a user's browser window, and/or may be too small for their screen. How can I make my images re-size themselves automatically so that they fit on the user's browser screen? Is it a browser-specific thing or is there code I can use?

If you have the image open on its own, with no HTML on the same page, IE will resize it for you automatically. Firefox has an extension to do it and most sane people will have it installed.

b) The overall layout of your website. Many non-professionals add too many gimmicks and tinsel that distract from the pictures. Plus, the buttons are often too big, the colours too colourful the used fonts too arbitrarily chosen.
|Quoting Nighthawk (Reply 4):|
You dont need to install an extension, firefox also automatically resizes images. I would create an HTML page with some thumbnail images, when you click on the image open the fullsize image (and not a page containing the image, ie your URL will be [a href="image.jpg"]link[/a]. That way the users browser will resize it automatically.
|Quoting ANITIX87 (Reply 5):|
So you mean have the file in the folder for that be literally just the image? Something like:
|Quoting RichardPrice (Reply 7):|
No, just point a link at the image, dont have a page pulling the image in.
|Quoting ANITIX87 (Reply 8):
The link doesn't do anything, at least not for me. It just re-loads this page, haha. So I'm still a little bit confused on just how to do it.

Very much like this:

Thanks. It works just as I wanted it to, but there is one minor issue. One of the things I'm worried about it people stealing images off the site. I don't want to ruin them with watermarks or text on them, so I have found scripts online to disable right-clicking. If I tag images this way to open them by themselves, I can no longer disable right-click, can I? I assume not, since there would be nowhere to place the script.

Your thumbnails are no real thumbnails but the actual, big picture scaled down. Better make real thumbnails so the page will load much faster.
|Quoting ANITIX87 (Reply 15):|
So you think having actual thumbs and waiting for the large one would be better?
|Quoting NoUFO (Reply 16):|
Yes, that's the purpose behind thumbnails. Let's say you display twenty pictures and I want to see only five in full-size, I still have to wait for the twenty pics to load.
