  • I browse deviantArt from time to time and I wanted to make images display bigger, because there is so much useless whitespace on that site.
  • On first glance that would be simple - remove the set dimensions of the image element and the overly conservative `srcset`.
  • Because it's a react site, and will reset the style any time you resize the viewport, I use some agressive css. The site's style already includes `max-width: 100%` and `max-height: 100%`, which are also important.
  • Here's the changes in userscript form
  • ```
  • // ==UserScript==
  • // @name deviantArt expand images
  • // @version 1.0
  • // @grant GM_addStyle
  • // @match https://www.deviantart.com/*
  • // ==/UserScript==
  • document.querySelector('._28lPU').removeAttribute('srcset')
  • GM_addStyle(`
  • ._28lPU {
  • height: unset !important;
  • width: unset !important;
  • }
  • `)
  • ```
  • Alternatively, just open dev tools and delete these properties manually.
  • Here's a page to test on: https://www.deviantart.com/hexanity/art/Helldivers-2-Orbital-bombing-1039305812
  • Based on what I know about flexbox and images, this should allow the image stretch up to it's native size to fit its flexbox container.
  • However this doesn't happen on chrome. Image remains tiny. Works as expected in firefox.
  • I tried to isolate the problem, but was unable to: https://jsfiddle.net/n9k2853c/
  • There's a few things I'm looking for here:
  • 1. This is a bug in chrome, right? (And is not my understanding or firefox that is broken?)
  • 2. Help isolating the problem, so perhaps it can be reported.
  • 3. Help finding a workaround.

Images won't fit flex container on chrome
I browse deviantArt from time to time and I wanted to make images display bigger, because there is so much useless whitespace on that site.

On first glance that would be simple - remove the set dimensions of the image element and the overly conservative `srcset`.

Because it's a react site, and will reset the style any time you resize the viewport, I use some agressive css. The site's style already includes `max-width: 100%` and `max-height: 100%`, which are also important.
Here's the changes in userscript form

```
// ==UserScript==
// @name     deviantArt expand images
// @version  1.0
// @grant    GM_addStyle
// @match    https://www.deviantart.com/*
// ==/UserScript==

document.querySelector('._28lPU').removeAttribute('srcset')

GM_addStyle(`
._28lPU {
    height: unset !important;
    width: unset !important;
}
`)

```
