What property can I use to resize my image?

I have an image that I would like to resize when I change the browser width, so that the image does not look squashed or squeezed when I change the screen width to a mobile device or a desktop. Is there a property that can fix this?

Thanks!

Here is a solution from stackoverflow

To make the images flexible, simply add max-width:100% and height:auto. Image max-width:100% and height:auto works in IE7, but not in IE8 (yes, another weird IE bug). To fix this, you need to add width:auto\9 for IE8.

Add the following to your css

img {
    max-width: 100%;
    height: auto;
    width: auto\9; /* ie8 */
}
