Display 800x600 without changing your monitor.

Ever get sick of resetting your display resolution to check how your new album will look to someone with a lower resolution monitor?
I have set up a couple of "proof" pages to display an album in an <object> set to the appropriate size (you could use an <iframe> for the same purpose).
You can see them in action here,
Use the buttons to go from 800x600 to 1024x768 or to your normal display. The buttons will open the new page in a new window.

Also easy way to check other resolutions is for IE7 free plug-in IE7PRO and for FF add-on Yet Another Resizer.
Don't know about IE6, but it must be something similar for it also.

Ha!!! If I had known about those I might not have bothered!
But it was an interesting exercise.

I use the Resizer in FF's Web Developer toolbar. It does a lot more than just resizing, and is awesome when troubleshooting nested tables.

Thanks, Alan.
I couldn't get the downloader to work on that page, but I found a installer on
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/60
which seemed to be OK.

FAQ says IE7Pro can work with IE6 as well as IE7.

In my earlier career, we had minicomputers from DEC, and got to know our DEC repair guy pretty well. On their service visit sheets, each problem had a code, like code 23 for "bad power supply." He said that the code they used most often was code 47, which they defined as "loose nut at the terminal." ;)

no .... I read their FAQ but got nowhere ... it was late, so maybe I'll have better luck later!
