Resizing Images - Macromedia Dreamweaver

This is my first post here, but I suspect it is the first of many. My question today concerns images. I normally use a 800x600 screen resolution when viewing my site, and the layout appears exactly as I want it. The problem begins when I switch to a higher resolution. Once I change the view, the text layout is fine, but the images don't resize to the new resolution. What am I doing wrong?...

    You are doing nothing wrong. Images don't resize like that. They would
    look crummy if they did anyway.

    I should add the images are in jpeg format, and I'm browsing with IE 6.

    What Jerry Baker said. Read through the group and find posts which deal
    with flexible design and/or browser window size and read up on it.

    Images on screen are measured in units of pixels.

    A 100x100 image in 800x600 res on a 17 inch monitor will be 100x100 pixels.

    A 100x100 image in 1024x768 on a 17 inch monitor will still be 100x100
    pixels but it will appear smaller because the pixel dimensions are
    physically smaller (e.g. the screen now shows 1024 pixels left to right
    instead of 800).

    Hence, images don't resize in terms of their pixel dimensions (and we as web
    designers do not alter them either), they just look smaller on the same
    screen at higher resolution.

    When you increase screen resolution, if your page design is flexible then
    your page layout will adjust to suit and the relationship of text and images
    will change accordingly. If your page design is fixed then the layout will
    stay the same but will look smaller on a higher resolution.
