Examiner will need to expand diagram images in browser

Do you think this is an issue? I exported my class diagram with StarUML as JPEG, and when opened in a browser I have to expand it to see the picture properly.

Is this expected? Any tips?

Thanks.

Hi Sam.

What do you mean with "expand"? Maximize window? It's not a problem. Remember, Sheil recommends you take 1280x800 as a base resolution, so the examinator don't have to use scrollbar. On his blog, Sheil says you could presume a "1680 x 1050 for a 21 inch monitor". I'm not sure it's a good advice, but it came from Sheil. I followed the 1280x800 as base, but still the examinator would have to use his vertical scrollbar in some diagrams.

You can't possibly miss marks because the examiner has to scroll up/down or left/right to see your content.
It wouldn't be right at all

Thanks Eduardo. I haven't check Sheil's blog in a long time! I will now..

I meant in the actual browser, with window fully maximized, a magnifying glass over the image allows to expand fully, and when it does the image is actually huge.. both horizontal and vertical scrollbars are activated.

Any idea how to reduce image? It was created with StrarUML.

mmmm, I got it. I tried very hard to fit my full image in 1280, but you can shrink image by fixing its width and height in img tag and linking it (a tag) to the original image file in order to examinator see the picture in full size. I thought about magnifying glass, but who can tell if the browser examinator is using has this tool, right? I also imagine they can use a special browser that reads .jar files in a secure sandbox, so you can't be sure they will have such tool.
