Re: [NH] Display only part of an image?
I don't understand why you can't just use a graphics program such as Irfanview
to either crop or resize the image. It is so much simpler to do that than any
of the "solutions" using html or CSS or clips. You can do a very precise crop
and//or resize in a minute to make a graphic fit a particular space.
I have some boxes that are 180 px wide and 114 px high and I can crop and
resize to that exact size (or very close) using Irfanview. Again, I don't understand
why you want to do it some other way. There are a number of programs that will
do this; Irfanview is excellent and free.

Here's a thing I'm not sure it's even possible, but I would like to find
Is there a way to display only *part* of an image file in a Web page?
For instance, if I have a 300 x 400 px photo, can I "crop" it in
HTML/CSS in order to display just a smaller rectangle inside it (like
one cropping 50 px from the top and left, and 100 px wide?)
Where do you want to bug today?
