    Hi Edward, ( can I ?):D

    On my screen of my display whole pic is visible when its width is 800 pixels,so 900-1000 pixels width is also acceptable, there is unvisible the small part of a pic only.But there is possiblity to display these big pics as small ones.For sure you have seen these with a bar of enlargement at a top of pics.I think that this can be set in your UserCP section.Then the system does it automaticly when a pic is bigger than the value you can set, I hope.

    Thanks Tobarghe for your friendly reply!
    I am happy to know you had no wrong feeling about my comment.

    Your artwork of Zero fighter is not only perfect on sketching details(except the props), natural Japanese character on the fuselage and well researched total color scheme but very educational to me because I have little knowledge about the captured Japanese aircrafts in the war.

    I look forward to your future greater advance.
