Image Based Website

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by =?Utf-8?B?SGVsdGVyIFNrZWx0ZXI=?=, Jul 31, 2007.

  1. Hello all,
    I have decided that I want to try and make a website entirely out of images,
    using several images as the main body. it struck me, however, that suck a
    website might get reuced in size due to the way the browser works. you know,
    it'll reduce the size of the graphic so that it fits on the page. is that
    only if one views an image in a browser, not an image in a webpage? if it
    happens on both occasions, is there an asp.net/html way to get around the
    reduction of the image size? i am in no position to check any of my
    suspicions because i am at a library computer in western scotland, on
    holiday, at the moment.

    i hope i have expressed my need with sufficient clarity. if not, well,
    perhaps i could give it another try at explaining. thanks in advance, ladies
    and gentlemen!

  2. Images are rendered in a browser as pixel sizes only. This means that the
    image is always the same size relative to the browser viewport. However, as
    you've observed, browsers sometimes resize the images automatically to fit,
    if they are too large. I'm afraid there's not much you can do about that,
    other than to break large images up into smaller ones, and perhaps use
    tables to piece them together.

    hi,

    or set the size of your img tag and it will do fine (btw, you can also do it
    using css) :

    <img src="yourfile.jpg" width="1600" height="1200">

    I hope it helps
