Using CSS to expand visibility of image

Using CSS to expand visibility of image

I'm wanting a header image to expand it's width as the browser window expands from 800 pixels to 1024 or from a 4 X 3 monitor to a 16 x 9 monitor.
So in a smaller browser window, the right side of the image would become cropped, but become visible as the browser window expands.
Is there a way of doing this by placing the image in the container background field and using css to achieve this.

Also have this work in both EI and Firefox/Safari browsers with out to many hacks.

Thanks

Chris

You should be able to do this by having the image inside of a div that you are controlling the size of. If you set the overflow to hidden and set the size of the div to be a percentage it should give you this effect. Here is an example of how this might look with inline styling in the html:

<div style="width:50%; overflow:hidden;">
<img src="your image file here.png" />
</div>
