Distorted images due to wide screen

My images on my web site look "fat" and stocky because of the wide screen. Is there a way to resize a web page to have it look like it does on a square computer?

Hi
Your entire desktop is probably stretched left to right.
You need to adjust the resolution of your computers video card in the display properties to one that the widescreen will accept correctly.
There is a chance that your video card may not have the correct resolutions available. If this is the case then you may be stuck with this view until you change coputers or video cards.
to get to display properties based on win2k or xp
Right click in the center of your desktop, choose properties, go to settings and there you should see the resolutions available. Try different ones till you find a good one, you may have to settle for one that is close to your monitors setup if the exact one isn't available.
If using a laptop with a standard screen with the wide monitor, you may need to disable the laptop screen and use just the monitor to get the correct resolution on the monitor.

Resizing picture on vizio e43-d2. the picture is cut off how do I resize it


You can use zoom but that will reduce the clarity of the image and you will loose some of the view. The "cut off" as you say is due to the aspect ratio of the video you are watching, that is to say width to height, when the picture has blanked out top and bottom sections it is because it is shot in wide screen format.

Wide screen monitor distortion
Depending upon the screen resolution that has been set in Display, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors.
To correct this distortion.
1. Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down the Shift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle).
2. Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolution slider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle image to the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then change the screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied with the image of the circle.
3. When you are satisfied then click apply.

Photos on craigslist


One of the useful features of Craigslist is that they allow you to upload up to eight digital photos to most classified ads for free.

Conveniently, they also allow the use of HTML code in the ad descriptions, which makes it possible for you to include an unlimited amount of photos hosted on external sites.

If you use the built-in upload tool, Craigslist will automatically resize the images for you.
If you host them on an external site, you will need to resize them yourself.

The resizing can be accomplished using HTML code.
Visit the Craigslist Web site and click the "post to classifieds" link Below.
http://www.craigslist.org/about/help/html_in_craigslist_postings/

Follow the prompts and enter in a title and description for your ad.
Click the "Add images" link when prompted if you want to upload some images with Craigslist's built-in uploading tool.

These will be automatically resized for you.
Continue reading if you want to add and resize your own images.


Go to your image host, such as Photobucket, ImageShack or Flickr, in a new browser window or tab and open the album containing the images you'd like to use.
Click or right-click on the images one at a time and choose the option (if necessary) to view the direct Web addresses for them.

This address is what you'll link to in the Craigslist ad. Type the following HTML code into the ad's Description box (a few lines below the text description you already typed in):
<img src="" height="" width="" />

Inside the "src" quotes, copy and paste the Web address for the first image you'd like to add to your ad.

Inside the "height" and "width" quotes, type in the height and width (in pixels) you'd like to resize it to.

For example:
<img src="http://www.site/image.jpg" height="200" width="300" />


Repeat the previous step for any additional images you'd like to add to your Craigslist ad.
When done, follow the prompts on the page to save and post your Craigslist ad.

I bought a computer with 15.4 Wide XGA display. It has not arrived yet. I want to put photos in. I believe the wide XGA will distort the photos. Can I make the view normal?


The size of the screen and its shape has no importance if you use a decent imaging program like IrfanView - in it the image will be resized to fit the screen and if the shape doesn't matches the screen will have black bands to compensate.
The only time a distortion will be encountered is when you will try to use it as a desktop background in the Stretch format - just select Center and all will be fixed. Of course the best solution is to crop and resize the picture to fit the screen exactly - you can do that with Irfan.

Vizio VX32L image distorts on edges like looking in a metal bowl.


I had a similar issue. Realized that the TV's "WIDE" setting was changed from "Wide" to "Panaramic". It was this panaramic setting that was causing the distortion on both sides of the screen. I had to switch it back to "Wide" using the "Wide" button on the remote to toggle back to "Wide" setting. Once I put it back to "Wide", problem went away. Hope this helps.

Monitor image size


There is nothing wrong with the monitor, the issue is that the web page you are looking at is designed for a lower resolution than you LCD is set for (Web pages are normally designed for 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768) you like have a wide aspect ratio monitor.

As I sit here writing this on my 12" wide aspect LCD I have a 2" wide white space on each side of my screen due to my 1280 x 800 aspect ratio.

The issue is one of WEB PAGE DESIGN not the fault of your computer video settings. The web page is written using page frames and fixed aspect ration settings to ensure that the page displays properly regardless of monitor type.

If you had a high end LCD (WUXGA 1920 x 1200), the web page would fill the upper left 1/4 of the screen.

If you lower the resolution of your display, then you'll have fuzzy icons and text, so essentially, get used to it.

Eventually, wed design will catch up with current display technology.
