I've found that when I extract images from within a pdf document using the Acrobat program, the images are not the original size (they're usually smaller) plus sometimes they come out sliced and diced into sections.

sometimes too, but Firefox's Webdeveloper toolbar works better than
Opera's does, so I use that most of the time.

things up so the visitor can choose. Well, I guess I also need to
save your page source, so I'll do that too; it must have a place from
which to choose.
Firefox gave me a menu from the Webdeveloper toolbar from which to
choose, but that wouldn't be how a person, say, using IE, would
choose, nor one using a browser without Ff's webdeveloper toolbar. So
I'll be back again.
