Arthur, King of Time and Space


Today's cartoon was a technical experiment. See, I noticed that when you specify the dimensions of an image file in your HTML code for a page, but the image file's dimensions are actually larger than that, the code contrains the image to the dimensions you specified. Now, in art school I was told that all art looks tighter when it's reduced. So I thought I'd see if it's true.

Since this was the first time I tried it, there was a lot of trial and error in the execution, and I won't know unless I try it at least once more whether it's significantly more time consuming to work in twice presentation size. But that's only my end of it.

The cartoon above is a file 1830 pixels by 656 pixels constrained by code to 915 by 328. Below, the same cartoon file reduced and saved as 915 by 328. I want to know from you, the readers, which of them looks better on your browser if either, and whether that one looks better than they usually do; and why. Thanks.
