    size of image in new window

    I am adding a picture to a dermatology website and also want to include a simple bit of javascript to open a new window with a real close-up of the bit of skin involved. The large version of the pic is too big to fit on the screen, so I just want to open a small window and let people scroll around to look at the bit they want.

    So this is what I wrote:

    <a href="xxx.jpg" onclick="window.open('xxx.jpg', 'window_name', 'width=400,height=400,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes'); return false"><IMG border="0" alt="Click here to view a close up of this condition." src="xxx.jpg"></a>

    However the new window "intelligently" resizes xxx.jpg to fit in it, which completely misses the point. How can I make it leave the picture in its original size?? Please help! I'm using XP.

    You could access the image through the window name reference and then use that to change the image back to its original specifications.

    THanks, could you possibly post an example of how to do that - otherwise I think I'll probably just end up making new html pages for any examples I want to show this way.
