Checking a screenshot of a Rook's legal moves in Chess in a graphics program, the squares for legal moves were at the right pixel locations, but the board was smaller than it should be. The image was 427x431. For comparison, I loaded the image by itself, took another screenshot, and checked its size. This time, it was 436x440. So, the browser is shrinking the image to fit the space, and after the browser has shrunk it, the precalculated positions for the empty images do not align with it. Therefore, I have to prevent the browser from shrinking the image.
