Default Re Large Pics

Is there a setting say in your CP that resizes pics so you don't have to scroll left/right and up/down ? As some pics are a little too large to fit on the page I have tried selecting the 'fixed width' option at the bottom of a page! I am not sure why some pics are too large as Pc's can Zoom in and out just like I can on my Set Top Box. Thanks in advance ATB

Hi Dave!
I think one of the reasons many pics are oversized these days is because that is what newer cameras spit out. Images are automatically optimized for printing out with an extremely high resolution, and most users don't bother to resize the images so that they are optimized for the web instead. . The result? Without resizing you'd need a monitor 10' wide to view the pic.
We've been solving this problem for many months now by using a resizing filter that reduces the image size to something manageable. The swolution used to be to loimit the size of images. It's not perfect but it at least addresses the oversize pics issue.

Hi Jean Thanks for the explanation A big example is on potty training ( By Lovemydogs) showing a bag of kibble with the feeding instructions It way to big and the fliter doesn't seem to reduce the size much. Can I make a suggestion? That a pic should only fit in the size of the posters post boundaries in other words it can be a thumb nail that will open in a new window (already used by some members) which then by either a Set Top Box or pc can be zoomed in or out! or like i say if it's not a thumb nail it can be resized upto the boundaries of the posting area which is big enough to see by any one's standards And I am viewing on a 28" wide screen Tv! I did make some changes in my CP but maybe I have selected the wrong option? Could the filter be decreased a little more? Thanks again Jean ATB
