Just go under "Internet Options" and turn off the auto image sizing. I too found it annoying and I turned it off. Stop the insanity!! :) Ryan -----Original Message----- From: Joe Crawford [mailto:jcrawford at avencom.com] Sent: Thursday, October 25, 2001 1:25 PM To: evolt.org's "thelist" Subject: [thelist] Unsolicited, maddening feature about IE6/Win to know about <tip type="beware the auto-resize feature of Win IE6"> IE6 for Windows is pretty nifty. But one thing which is NOT nifty is the auto-resize dealy bop. Some of us like being able to right click on an image and see the height and width in pixels. Example - go here: http://websandiego.org/wsd_media/websandiego-wall1024.gif This image is 1024 x 756 - but in all likelihood if you have a resolution that's relatively small, IE6 has fit it in the window, and is telling you that the Dimensions are some other number. I find it insane that it is telling you the /viewed/ size and not the /actual/ size of the image. On an html page, I can see a sense of what the height and width are - but as a standalone, I think it should tell you the actual dimensions. How did I find this? Well, I was wondering what the default size for a background image was - so I loaded it up, and dutifully began working on an image that size (thinking that I could trust the numbers) - of course when slotted into place it was screwed up. So beware! Don't trust the numbers from a Right-Click -> Properties unless the image is /really/ being viewed at actual size in IE6. </tip> This drove me nuts, and I've been meaning to share it. - Joe <http://artlung.com/> -- ...................
