Maximizing picture width in post

I have started adding pictures to posts. I would like to be able to make them as large as the (padded) width of text. But when I try to make them bigger than about 80% of text width, the captioned frame (which I like) stops growing, and the picture sticks out on one side.

Is there a way to expand the maximum frame size, or is there some other issue? I am using floating width of 99%, with two 220px sidebars.

Thanks very much-

one thing you can try is look at the html of the picture insert, find the 'class=' and see if it has size-full, if it has size-medium or size-small, change it to size-full

Thanks. It was set at "large"; making it "full" didn't help. I tried stretching the photo frame in the editing pane with the corner handles. But it always springs back to somewhat narrower than text. If I make it bigger with the sliding scale in the photo-editor window, it just pops out of the frame. Must be some setting in PHP or CSS that determines maximum width - I'll look around for it, or just live with it. Effect might be an artifact of my setting floating width, so I'll try it in fixed-width sometime.

Thanks-

Hmmm, I do this all the time. I insert a photo from the media and use a caption. If I don't change 'size-medium' to 'size-full', the image won't resize ar you change the window size.

take a look at zenofmud.org the post 'I'm a Father-in-Law!!!' and resize the window, is that what you are looking for?

Looks about right. Again, I haven't been able to get max picture width to equal max text width. Will play more with settings and report back if/when I crack it.

Thanks-

Ctenos - did you ever figure this out? I'm having the same issue.

Afraid not - thought it might be unique to my host or something. Must be a bit of code hiding somewhere that will fix this. Please post if you find it.
