A typical screen is 600x800 pixels but often there is a menu or status bar across the bottom taking up a few pixels, say 40 to 60 so sized a picture a bit smaller may keep the actual available area full. These days many screens have larger pixel sizes so it it is sometimes better to let the reader scale the image down to fit but the aspect ratio can still be a problem for some users not want bars around the image. There is no way to expect the image to be perfect except on a single device as the various products differ so much. If you are willing to permit the aspect ratio to vary by CSS entries you can achieve a full image size but whether this is desirable depends on what the image is.
Sorry, still confused.

This sounds like: might work, perhaps.... Is the situation that volatile?

I have the same picture in different sizes; 500x707 and 800 x 1131.

Can I use one of these or should I ask my designer friend who made the picture to do another with a different size/ratio? If so, which?
