Enable Image Resizing in Opera

If you ever wanted to have an Internet Explorer like functionality in Opera, here is how:

Open high resolution image (sample)
Click on “Fit to Width” icon (can be found under “View”, in the bottom right corner)
Done.

Thanks to Rafael Luik for tip.

    hmm..
     
    i always thought that IE/ff image autoscalling made sure, that entire image is not cropped.
     
    enabling ‘fit to width’ for a tall image will not prevent it from being cropped from the bottom
     
    so this is not the same functionality, rather a poor’s man version of it

      System -> Preferences -> Preferred Applications. You should figure it out from there. :-)

    I think Opera may not have this feature because it is bad about resizing.
