So close yet so far with Flickr Annotated image embedding

Having thought my colleague Stuart and I (with the help of @Alun) had found a solution for embedding Flickr images with Mbedr, I ahve stumbled upon a problem.

Mbedr produces an iframe code like this.

<iframe src="http://www.elsewhere.org/mbedr/?p=4773332997&v" frameborder="0" 
scrolling="no" height="500" width="210"><a  href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/uolsd
/4773332997/"  title="Covering letter by UoL Student Support and Development 
Service, on Flickr"  target="_blank"><img  src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4102
/4773332997_88e100f60b.jpg"  width="210"  height="500" alt="Covering letter"/></a>
</iframe>

Mbedr has a limited width of 500px. I thought by altering the size of the iframe in the embed code the picture would adjust. Alas no, for some reason the image remains at the preview size. Here is an example of a frame adjusted to 500px wide by 1190px height.
