1600 x 1200 is too large.
Even on the screen where I have 1920x1200 resolution, it is very seldom that I have the browser window open to the full screen, as I usually do many things in parallel on my computer. My laptop has even smaller screen resolution. So, your 1600 pixels do not fit in the browser window (and laptop's screen). Instead of the photo being aligned on the left side, there is a huge empty margin on the left.

Actually, the image itself is 800x800px. So, having that table 1600 px wide is rather strange.

Here is how your page looks in my browser:

Overall, my personal opinion is that a photo should be easily visible on the screen of the targeted audience without scrolling (either vertical or horizontal).

A lot of people around me are using laptops. Until recently, most laptops were with XGA screens (1024x768), and then some with the "wide-screen" aspect 1280x720 or 1280x800.
So, I was trying to keep the photos within 900x600 px, to allow for the
browser frame, headers, etc.
Gradually (and especially since many laptop screens are now 1366x768 or higher), I've relaxed those to 700x700 for the square format.

BTW, the webpage layout is a bit annoying: it has this empty white space
on the left, requiring to scroll the page to the right to see the
photograph. There is some weird table structure in the webpage design that
forcing that empty space. (I am vaguely remembering that I may have
commented on that earlier. If so, - I am sorry for repeating it.)

Ah, interesting. No I haven't heard you rant on this before ;-)

The page is created in Softpress Freeway 7 which is rather dated and is a
WYSIWYG editor for simpletons like me. The page is 1600 by 1200 pixes and
aligned centre so I'm at a loss as to why you would have to scroll sideways? Happy to take advice as I just wanted a simple white page as a template for my pics :-)
