Re: adventure bus - picture size
All your pictures look fine and not cut off on a 19" monitor here. Only you know if there was more to the pictures that might have been cropped, but there is no visible evidence of any pictures not fitting or being cut off.
Some of the largest pictures in others' posts sometimes appear partially, but in that case there are sliders to move the image around and see all of the parts.
Check the resolution setting for your laptop display. Another thing that occasionally happens on my Vista PC is that the browser appears in the "restore down" multi-pane condition, with the "smaller" size set larger than the available display area. Clicking "maximize" (the rectangle next to the "close program" X ) shrinks the browser to full screen and makes the whole page(s) viewable.
Someone said "Making good decisions comes from experience, experience comes from bad decisions." I say there are three kinds of people: those who learn from their mistakes, those who learn from the mistakes of others, and those who never learn.
