Actually, the HEIGHT= and WIDTH= attributes do both.

If you have, for example, a 100 pixel by 100 pixel graphic and you reference
it as <IMG SOURCE=graphicname HEIGHT=50 WIDTH=50>, the graphic will appear
half its size on the page, in the 50x50 pixel space.

Of course, if you don't get the proportions right, it will create for
interesting deformations. And the full graphic itself still has to be
transferred from the server to the browser. It just appears within the
designated space.
