Leaflet: adjust popup to picture size

I'm trying to include pictures in my leaflet popups, but the popup-size doesn't adjust to the picture size. I found a solution to this on github:


While that solution fixes the size of the popup, the result is shifted and the popup doesn't show up centered over the icon/marker... Any way to change that?

.leaflet-popup-content {
width:auto !important;

Also the other proposed solution (setting the maxWidth on the popup) doesn't help in my case. The popup width keeps on being the default width of 300px...

function pop_Fotos(feature, layer) {
var popupContent = '<img style="max-height:500px;max-width:500px;" src="...");
layer.bindPopup(popupContent, {maxWidth: 500, closeOnClick: true});

Simply specifying maxWidth: "auto" option on the popup seems enough…

layer.bindPopup(popupContent, {
  maxWidth: "auto"

Unfortunately, if the image is not loaded yet in browser cache, the popup will open right away with default size, and adjust its size but not its position once the image is fully loaded and displayed. As a result, the popup is shifted and its arrow is misplaced compared to the marker it is bound to.

A simple workaround is to listen to the image "load" event and to re-open the popup at that moment:

popupContent = document.createElement("img");
popupContent.onload = function () {
popupContent.src = "path/to/image";
layer.bindPopup(popupContent, {
  maxWidth: "auto"
