Image resizing trick

I was recently talking about finding ways to deal with over-sized images on my Livejournal friends page. I’ll have a better solution once I get around to paying for my account and playing around with custom styles, but here’s something that works in the meantime. On Jesse’s bookmarklet site there is a script called zoom images out that does the trick nicely.

It’s a bit of JavaScript you can put into a bookmark that, when used, will reduce the size of every image on the current page by 50%. It works for me in Mozilla and should work in any recent version of IE.
