Well if you know the size of the image you can build the size dynamically. For example if the image is 400 pixels wide by 200 pixels high and are stored in variable iWidth and iHeight, then your window.open would be similar to:
window.open(<url here>, "NewWin", "width=" + iWidth + "px,height=" + iHeight + "px"  );

Hi elladi
Try this one
Since in your case images may come from the database ,so u can put ur image source accordingly

<img src="images1.jpg" id="myimg">
myimg1=new Image()

//inorder to manipulate your window you must specify your parameters
//for example obj.width+20 for giving extra space so that proper image can be seen
//so i prefer to use window.resizeTo(obj.width+20,obj.height+20);
Hope this will help you
Cheers :)
