Help with respsonsive site / table


New Coder

i am currently in the process of programming a new website for myself and for this i am using a Wordpress template, filling it with some individual HTML/CSS code. My biggest problem is the site is not responsive / the content is too big :-(

Please have a look at this, while resizing your window:


Here’s the code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
html {height: 100%;}
body {min-height: 100%;}
table {border: hidden;}
p {text-align: Left; font-family: "Gill Sans", Sans-Serif; color: #FFFFFF; font-size: 1.3vw;}
<div style="overflow-x:auto;">
<td style="min-width:636px;"><img src="http://www.nico-schlegel.de/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/nico-s-visuals_portfolio_tunnelv-001.jpg" alt="'Tunnel Vision 1'"></td>

I guess this has to do with the min-width of the pictures in my table…? Ideally the images should always fit the screen in height, while the width of the whole table can vary, making it scrollable sideways. Is there a maybe better way to give the pictures a size-attribute which is fluid on different screen sizes? Or any other way to make this work? I’ve tried so much already.

Some help would be greatly appreciated!
Programmers stop using tables to make web site back in the 50's. Tables are only used to display data. And img is an inline object anyway so just remove all that table junk and the outcome will look the same.

Making people keep going right or left to view images would make me leave to site and never go back.
Yes setting a min-width is not a good idea
You should look up slideshow for images How To Create a Slideshow for smaller screens and if you don't like it for larger screen you should think about using flex or grid to show the images.
Do you want the images to go outside the screen width or do you want them to be responsive? I can do one, not both.
Why do you need to use a table for this?

Ideally i'd want them to go outside the screen (width of the whole table / grid is fluid), while the height of the content always fits the screen
