definitely her dog in this case..

I don't normally do portraits but here's a shot of my sister & her "best friend" whilst at Bolton Abbey a couple of weeks ago, for the record her husband is the guy at the end of the stepping stones on the left

(edit) Unfortunately due to the forum layout the photo isn't displayed fully, click on it & you can see the full version...maybe someone can tell me how to avoid problems like this when posting shots ??

Not sure what you mean here. The two versions seem identical to me, and indeed have the same URL.

On my PC screen my sister is chopped-off on the R/H side by the adverts, I need to click on the image to be able to see the whole picture...

I use a 17" monitor @ 1024 x 768, maybe the forum is optimised for bigger screens ?

I use a small screen too. Even with Adblock turned off I see the full photo.
Good to see the sun shines sometimes at Bolton Abbey - I've only ever been there in the rain

I've looked at this page using IE7, and if I shrink the browser width, the adverts do indeed intrude over the top of the right hand side of the image.

With Firefox, however, they don't - the advert column gets progressively hidden by the right side of the browser as you shrink it, leaving the picture intact.

So one solution would be to switch to Firefox, I guess.

Or get a new monitor that you can use at a higher resolution - but I suspect you didn't want to hear that..

Apart from this, I can't see a solution. You are a member of a dying breed, using 1024x768, it has to be said, although I'd be annoyed too, if it was the adverts that forced me to a different monitor, or a browser that I didn't want to have to use.

Edit: of course there are two other solutions. One is for the site owners to remove the ads (no chance), and the other is for the site development team to fix the weird behaviour in IE7, where the RH column overlaps.

Raise a report using the link at the bottom - they've been fairly responsive to our requests for fixes, with a few notable, even notorious now, exceptions.

Thanks for the info Chris,

intend to buy a new widescreen monitor soon anyway so I guess it won't be an issue then, nice to know I'm a bit of a dinasour

It works in Firefox superbly well, much better than IE7. I might have a rethink about my default browser!

I am surprised you had to browse this forum to come to that conclusion
Best regards,

The full story is that I had some sites that didn't work too well in Firefox but did in IE7. Still do, so it looks as though using two browsers will be the order of the day.

Sorry to hear. Must be annoying, switching browsers.

This add-in for Firefox lets you switch to the IE rendering engine for the current page, and also add to a list of sites that it knows to use the IE engine for.

Pretty much gives you the best of both worlds.

You're welcome. There are absolutely loads of add-ons (not -ins, it would seem..) that do all kinds of cool things. Once you've installed it (edit: Firefox, I mean), go to

Tools | Add-ons | Get Add-ons.

Then be prepared to waste a lot of time

Especially with this one.
