    i have arranged the size and resolution of my web photos.
    i would like to know if you can see them right at yor monitor.

    i am using a 19" and 1280x1024 screen resolution,
    i guess if you use same resolution you will see the full picture,
    even if you have an smaller monitor, but not sure about it

    check it out and tell me

    First off nice photo.
    I am running at 1280 x 1024 and can see the whole photo at once but I
    have to scroll a bit to see the whole web page, I am using Internet
    Exporer.

    The size of the monitor will not matter but the screen resolution will.

    As you point out, the displayed area depends on the resolution of the
    monitor, not on its size. The size only makes the displayed area
    appear bigger or smaller.

    This tool allows you to check what a viewer would see at a given
    screen resolution: http://www.brianapps.net/sizer.html
    For example, if you set it to 800 by 600, it will resize the window to
    that size. That's what a viewer would see with a monitor set to that
    resolutions and with the window occupying the entire screen.

    Note that not all pixels on the viewing monitor are available for
    displaying the actual web page content because of the scroll bar,
    status bar, window title, menu bar, etc.

    Nice photos

    I'm using Firefox, 1280x1024 res.
    The image menu is hidden and the right hand side of the page is cut off.
    Love this photo though, it fits nicely in the viewport as long as I turn
    off any extra toolbars that I may have open. If I turn on a couple more
    toolbars I need to scroll to see the bottom edge of the photo.
    Here's a screen shot
    members - optusnet - com - au/~caisse - com - au/images/Clipboard01.jpg
    (replace " - " with dot)
    The webpage and viewport dimensions are being reported by Firefox if
    that's any help.

    Have you tried setting your picture width in terms of percentage instead of
    absolute widths in pixels?

    thanks to all,
    thats ok for me, i only wanted that the picture
    takes the whole screen, if you have to scroll in some ones
    for the numbers, weel thats not a big deal, never mind,

    anyway each time i replace the photos i adjust everything better,
    besides i still have to writte things to each picture,
    i sow i have made a mistake in the last one, is at 300 ppp and
    then becomes too big

    That will work but on some machines it will cause significant degradation to
    the image. YMMV
    Film best,

    PS: The alt.photography gang hate it when I say film best. They first
    attacked me on 10/29/04 in "Camera for my Wife": http://tinyurl.com/5brkq

    Why do you want to post your pictures so big? That's a mistake, IMO -
    easier to steal and print. You want them much smaller.

    Technically it is. The smallest part of an image with digital is a
    single pixel. With film it's the smallest part of a dye cloud or a
    silver atom.

    Perceptually, it's a lot closer :)

    hey "me",

    I am not arguing with you btw, but what do you feel is better about film?

    Forget about the physical size of the monitor; it makes absolutely no
    difference.

    The only thing that matters is the total number of pixels in the image
    and the total number of pixels on a monitor. A monitor set to 1024x768
    displays 1,024 pixels across and 768 pixels down. It displays 1,024
    pixels across and 768 pixels down no matter what its size; that's what
    1024x768 means.

    When you make an image for the Web, do not worry about or even think
    about the resolution in terms of pixels per inch. The only thing that
    matters is the total number of pixels. To a browser, a 600x400 picture
    at 300 pixels per inch is identical to a 600x400 picture at 72 pixels
    per inch is identical to a 600x400 picture at 2,000,000,000,000 pixels
    per inch. Nothing matters but the number of pixels.
