too wide images can be handled by hiding the overflow.

Change the width of your browser-window to see how it works.

fig.1 – screenshot with text
fig.2 – nature

The images used in this demo are 1280 × 635 pixels in size.

Obviously the hiding of overflow is not working well for all images, simply because we may end up hiding too much.
