Now if you have a page with several pictures it adds up to preposterous dimensions. Plus scrolling through such pages can be very clumsy as some browsers jerk very annoyingly when scrolling over those resized images.
Doing this is fine though if the difference between the original and the displayed image dimensions is small, e.g. if you are using the medium width image and just make it a little smaller.
