If you lock the screen before setting the fileName of the image, you could
size the image properly before displaying it, using the formattedWidth
porperty, and then reposition the image if necessary.  Or maybe do the
sizing offscreen before showing the image.

 set width of img "displayImage" to formattedWidth of img "displayImage"
