When I previewed, they fitted absolutely fine. It was only when I posted that they overshot a tad...and it is only a tad...no need to scroll at all really. I am generally careful about the size of images.

Well....I could counter your "Size discipline!  :knuppel2:" with "Don't view the forums on a stoopid iPad"  :P

Out of interest, what res does the iPad support? The images I posted where within the HD realms (1600x1071)

Yeah, they just barely don't fit on my 1920x1080 screen. My iPad 4 claims it's resolution is 2048-by-1536 resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi), but I saw less than of each picture on the screen.

Maybe if you set the width to 800 (like this "[img width=800]") then people can just click to see the larger picture and smaller screens can still view with out a lot of scrolling...

Will this be the one where you man up, take your time and go full aftermarket?
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

No - this is the one where I man up, take my time and go full aftermarket - it's got a shed load of PE



But then again...

I've just laid out for this



I know it's for the Abrahms - but it'll do for the Merkava
