Web page authors can also disable the Image toolbar for images that are embedded in a Web page.

Automatic Image Resizing

If you open pictures directly that are too large to display in your browser window, automatic resizing makes them fit. With this feature, you do not need to scroll horizontally or vertically to view large pictures. In addition, if you view pictures that fit within the browser window and then change the window size, Internet Explorer automatically adjusts the pictures to fit the new window size. To prevent image distortion, Internet Explorer also adjusts both the picture height and width (even if only a single dimension needs adjusting).

NOTE : Automatic Image Resizing only works for images that are directly opened in Internet Explorer. Images that are embedded in a Web page are not resized.

The Automatic Image Resizing icon appears in the lower-right corner of any picture that has been automatically resized to fit in the browser window. To expand a resized picture to its original size or resize the image to fit in the browser window, click the Automatic Image Resizing icon in the lower-right corner of the picture.

How to Enable or Disable Automatic Image Resizing

  1. In Internet Explorer, click Internet Options on the Tools menu.
  2. On the Advanced tab, scroll down to the Multimedia section.
  3. Click to clear (disable) or click to select (enable) the Enable Automatic Image Resizing
    check box.
  4. Click OK
