Yes, thought it should be simple. I have made a few left aligned pages before now and simple sites.

All I am trying to achieve is a webpage with a jpg on it.

I want the jpg to fill the screen and automatically shrink or grow to fit depending on monitor size, ie, 100%.

I have tried to do it with a table, but the image is so large that when i view it in ie on my 19 inch screen i have to scroll down and right to see the full image.

I have tried just setting the image as a background picture but the webpage dimensions are set too low i presume because it cuts off the bottom and right of the image and there is no optin to scroll.

Seems simple, but i'm rubbish, help appreciated.

The image is 1600 x 1200 to fit on large screens.

I just want a webpage which will contain the full image with no borders and which will reduce down proportionally to fit at 100% on what ever screen it is viewed on.

Must be possible?


i could upload example pic if required.
