You could place each image twice, choosing one and hiding the other with 
CSS depending if the medium is screen ot print. But why do you want to 
do it? Users wille expect to print the same content, not getting a 
30x50px image expanded to the full page...
Plus, you'd be serving the full images on every view, regardless if 
they're displayed or not.
