Add the following style...

.fitParent{
width: 100% !important;
height: auto;
}

Open in new window


and then wrap it with the div which you want the image to resize with ...

For eg...

<div class="col1">
   <img class="fitParent" src="imagePath.imgFormat" alt="">
</div>

Open in new window


What it will do is it will make the image width equal to the width of the parent tag that is div.col1....

Try this and if any problem is there comment below....
