I also have Opera installed on my Windows 10 laptop, though I don't normally use it. However, I have tried it here, and at 100% Zoom the image I posted above comfortably fills the screen, as it does in Chrome.
Therein lies the rub. The platform currently being used opens and displays differently depending on lots of variables. There are images in the current competition which are HUGE however I try to view them.
Here is a huge image, 3105 x 1950 pixels, but at 770Kb it meets the forum's posting rules. Lets see what it is like. And it absolutely SWAMPS the site.
And it forces the text to run off the screen as well unless you add carriage returns!
There needs to be size constraints on images as well as data constraints. This is my new car, or more precisely, the front wheel of my new car.
This is a Safari, normal setting, Print Screen, IE, again normal, shows a bit larger. Ed.
I get different sized images if I use Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox. However, what I have found is I get different sized images if I use my Monitor or my Laptop screen. Lily is great on my Monitor (resolution 1920 x 1080) but spills off the screen if I just use my laptop (1366 x 768)

Windows 10 + Edge : All ok. No problems with text or Image. Image size same as Lily ( John's pic ). Laptop.
Runs straight off the right hand side of my monitor Graham. Oh, Windows 7, Mozilla Firefox.

Here is a 'trial', posting direct from my PC.
This is an image of my granddaughter Lucy.
Techie stuff. Nikon D300, Nikkor 50mm AF 1:1.8D, @ F2.2, 1/25sec, ISO200, Metering Mode Pattern, Auto white Balance, Available Light. Post processed in PhotoPlus X5 & Nik software. Oh, 950 pixels on the long side, PP sorts out the other side automatically.
Well that seemed to work alright. What do you think?

Lovely emotive shot and thankfully, not over-sharpened......and fits exactly on the screen / perfectly - (F/Fox, Safari, Chrome and Opera) Vista, Win7 and Win 10. So much nicer than the I-Max like images we have seen recently......but that's only MY view.
That's OK Phil because the image file is only 950x630.
However, Brandon, it is good to be able to post bigger dimension images like Graham's, and to expect the forum software to fit them properly in any browser window in any operating system, so that those who wish can also enjoy them at a larger size, even if they have to be opened in another window to get the full view.
What's I-Max? Ta.
In the "old" days, all pics could be seen overall, software must have done a bit of this. If it could not be uploded, it was too large a file. Surely this can be incorporated in the updated version, phones or otherwise. Ed.
Sure worked on Lucy Phil. Cheers. Ed.
I will resize the images I post here to 1024 x 768. That way the image will always fit a laptop, whichever ends up the largest dimension (landscape or portrait).

Phil, 1500px is by no means a high-res image. It would only print to 5x3 inches. I use 1500 px only because that is the resolution size used by most professional libraries, such as here at "The Atlantic":http://www.theatlantic.com/photo/
If you go full-screen on any of their images, the res is 1500 x 1000 px compression limited to a maximum file size of 100 kb.
I wish this site worked the same.
I-max or IMAX is a cinematic film system which gives greatly enhanced resolution,enabling massive screens to be used to further utilise that increased resolution.
The world's largest IMAX screen is in Darling Harbour, Sydney, Australia, and measures 35.7 m × 29.7 m (117 ft × 97 ft)................ !
How can this be used to our advantage? Sorry, a bit dim. Ed.
