Here's the deal...

When we look at our webpage (we use publisher because we're not really good with coding) with IE, the images are fine. When we look at the images with FF, the images are poor. What's the deal?

I figure it's 1 of 2 things...

1) how we have the page setup

2) how we have our browsers setup



Any info would be appreciated! Thanks.

Please post a link for others to check your page and images to see if they can help. Plus, Firefox and IE will not always parse a page the same unless you know how to do workarounds.

This is one of the problems using publisher, front page, word or M$ specific product to make web pages in the manner of what you see, is what you get. It does not always work in other browsers. If you can, I would try to get Dreamweaver 8 or a free WYSIWYG Editor like NVU.

As for the images. I saved the image as called out in the source code from both browser's. Both images look just like the one in Firefox ( http://oregonjacks.5...s/image2891.gif ) when viewed in a graphics editor. Publisher may allow IE to clean up the image by using the publisher's code that FF ignores. Right now I really can not explain this. Maybe someone else would be willing to give an opinion or why the difference. Either way, the original image looks like what FF shows in all the graphics editors I used. Possibly the photo needs to be save in another format and then used, checked in FF.

We did a little more work and when we save the pic in another format, the quality is better. Thankgs for the lead on the WYSIWYG Editor. I'll give it a try.

Thanks all for your help!!

Thank you for posting back. Glad the different picture format worked for you. Should have put that suggestion at the beginning of my post above. :whistling: Would have saved all that reading.
