Resize the window to the picture's height and width

I just sent an email to fastpictureviewer support. However, maybe, it's better to put my functionality question here.

I am curious, how do I configure FastPictureViewer to resize the window to the picture's height and width? There is wasted Windows desktop real estate when flipping through unlike picture aspect ratios using FastPictureViewer (black borders between picture and window frame). I would prefer to see what's on my Windows desktop (in the background) instead of just wasted black filler/borders inside the window. The current picture viewer I use (Irfanview) does this already. Irfanview offers a variety of "Fit window to..." options. I dont see any of these types of options in FastPictureViewer (which is valuable for general picture viewing). Maybe this capability is called something else in FastPictureViewer?

Thanks in advance,
MKANET

There is no such automatic window resizing in FastPictureViewer. First because the author (me) hates to see a program's window bounce around the screen and change size all by itself: you click some Next arrow quickly and, because the following image is larger, the window resizes itself and moves to stay on the screen. As a result the toolbar moves to somewhere else on the monitor along with the rest of the window and your next click lands nowhere, or perhaps on another button. How user-friendly is that? Next, in Direct3D9 mode, it is not possible to resize the D3D device without discarding its video memory content, which is used for caching images, so this makes such a feature a double no-go!

I am embarrassed to say this. But, what I was trying to say is 1:1 picture viewing (window fitting to image with no wasted space; with a user-defined pixel width/height size limit to the window. Anyway, I just thought I would make the suggestion. It's definitely not a BIG need.
