    Hi

    Is it somehow possible to disable (or get around) automatic image resizing
    in IE? I've got a page where I dynamically generate an image with a height
    of 1000 pixels and it's automatically resized to fit in the user's browser.
    I don't want this. I want the user to scroll down to see the bottom part
    of the image. Now, I don't want the user to change their browser settings
    to disable the automatic resizing so can I somehow do something for my page
    only? JavavScript, placing the image in an iframe, whatever? I just don't
    want the image to be resized

    In short, no it's not really doable.
    You should use a graphics program to get the size you want and then
    add the image to the site.

    Are you sure it is in a page? I've never seen that behaviour, do you
    have an example online?

    This only happens when the image _is_ a "web page", an addressable
    resource (i.e., with its own URL) and it is opened in a browser as such.

    What if the user does want that and goes elsewhere?

    Fine. The wouldn't do that anyway.

    What they might do is that they click on the browser-supplied icon that
    changes the image from shrunk to full-size or vice versa. Do you have a
    problem with this flexibility? Too bad.

    If you just embed the image in an HTML document using the <img> tag, it
    won't be resized by IE. To me, this looks more like a problem than a
    solution, for an image as high as 1000 pixels and probably rather wide
    too. But you don't need anything more complicated than <img>.

    That is the only way it can be done.

    Nothing at all orthodox. You could ~possibly~ segment the image but that
    would be a nightmare of convolution.
