I have the max_image_width parameter set to 700 in my publican.cfg file, but it is ignoring it and using 444 instead.
I cannot reproduce this on Fedora 13.
* I downloaded an image 2118 pixels wide -- http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/50/Rue-de-paris-film102jpg.jpg
* renamed the image to "tower.jpg" and placed it in the en-US/images directory of a book
* placed the following in the XML of the book:
<imagedata fileref="images/tower.jpg" format="JPG"/>
<phrase>The Eiffel Tower</phrase>
* set the following in the publican.cfg file:
* built the book.
The image was in the book at apparently full size (I confess I didn't actually measure it, but it wouldn't fit on a monitor 1920 wide without scrolling sideways)
I then set:
The image seemed to be scaled appropriately.
Could you please include the XML that you used and the line from your publican.cfg file?

This is happening on every file in the book, naturally. I just uploaded the one; the svn repo is http://svn.devel.redhat.com/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/ecs/JON/2.4/Basic_Admin_Guide/en-US/, if you want the whole thing.

If it helps, I'm on RHEL 5.4 and the brand is JBoss (package version 1.9-0.el5).
This limit is a policy imposed by the JBoss brand.
[publican-jboss]$ grep max overrides.cfg
It's probably better to discuss this on the internal docs comms channels as it's not related to publican development.
