(*** This bug was imported into bugs.kde.org ***)
Version: unknown (using KDE 2.2.0 CVS >=20010503)
Installed from: compiled sources
Compiler: gcc version 2.95.2 19991024 (release)
OS: Linux (i686) release 2.4.4-ac6
when viewing a graphic image (jpg gif) in konqueror using the embedded viewer have the image resize (shrink grow) to the size of the active window. currently images must be scrolled around to see or resized w/ gimp or something but it would be nice to have the ability for these 'previews' to shrink to the active window. i particularly like this functionality with windows me/2000 (puke). :) using something like pixie or kview by itself just isn't convenient when doing file (image) management.

With KView this works when used as a stand-alone image viewer (configurable
in settings), but for the embedded viewer no similar option is available.
This issue is still open for konqueror / KDE 3.1.4.
Application: HTML Viewer Component Image Part
Operating System: Linux (i686) release 2.4.24-pre1-xfs (DEBIAN WOODY)
Compiler: gcc version 2.95.4 20011002 (Debian prerelease)
This issue is still open for konqueror / KDE 3.2.3
Still on wishlist for konqueror 3.3 (kde 3.3.0)
I don't know if 236 votes is quite much or not, but this issue is still open in KDE 3.3.1. I this so difficult to fix? BTW: Happy New Year! :-)
The code for this feature should be available in the "digiKam" application which allows automatic resize of a picture. (DigiKam Image Editor)
Try gwenview kparts. Unfortunately gwenview is not available in the official kde.
Unfortunately the latest 'stable' gwenview is for KDE 3.0. Any reports on how it interacts with 3.3?
The recommendation really shouldn't be to use a different viewer that has about thirty other options I really don't want and an interface I don't like, the wishlist item should just be solved.
Just add a 'Fit-to-Screen' button to the toolbar and have it remember state between uses so that most users will either just leave it on or off (IE and FireFox both let you swap between modes, but always start in the scaled mode, even if you always just turn it off).
Dear developers, why don't you implement this. 470 votes is quite an argument, isn't it? And digikam can do it, why should it be so difficult... Everytime I view photos, I dearly miss this feature. IE can do it and users really appreciate it there, why don't we have this feature long ahead of that drowsy sleepy Redmond giant....? :-))
I just discovered a new feature in KDE 3.4.0: There is a new view ("PhotoBook"). It is able to resize photos to the screen. It should be able to take exactly this code and reuse it in order to do what's this ticket is about.
... still does not work in Konqueror 3.5.1 (520 votes)
Are you volunteering to write the feature?
I am using Gwenview as it has a KPart and it does resizing if wanted so. Not a solution for the bug, but if someone wants this functionality now one can try it out.

This bug is confirmed in Ubuntu packages. There is no way to display an image as fit-to-window in Kubuntu 7.04 with KDE 3.5.8.
Still exists in KDE 4.1 - png files are resisable, jpg ones are not.
In KDE 4.1 as installed by Kubuntu 8.10 I see that the issue is resolved for JPG images as well. Closing. Thanks.
