    I use Dreamweaver Ultra IV to make changes on my website. I also use Dazzle to fix some of my pictures. When I add my pictures on my website thru Dreamweaver, they look fine when I save them. But, when I was using the Fetch 4.0 sample, the pictures were distorted. They never did that with 3.0.3. What makes them distorted and should I not use Dazzle to fix my pictures? I have an iMac OS9 version.

    Can you point me to one of the distorted pictures?

    My site is located at www.annimaesdecoratedemueggcollectibles.com. Click on the Product button (sometimes it takes a bit to load). The Football Santa is a picture retouched by Dazzle and yesterday afternoon was distorted in width. In other words, the picture looked like it had been grabbed by the sides and pulled out on both ends. The player was squashed and looked shorter, fatter. I spent the afternoon and evening changing all of the distorted ones. All had been retouched in Dazzle and the Fireman Santa was the only one I had left to do before my time ran out on Fetch. That's why all have been changed except that one. The Football Santa is the only picture remaining of the Dazzle retouches because it did NOT get distorted again after being replaced. I did not redo the picture; I just cleared it in my Dreamweaver program and reinserted it. The others I got from the original big print that I keep in a separate folder and then shrunk them in Hotshot to the size I needed. I like the touched ones better from Dazzle. Thanks

    It sounds like the HTML generated by Dreamweaver did not have the right image dimensions for your images, so the browser viewing them would distort them to fit the specified area. I'd be surprised if this had anything to do with Fetch -- if the images were corrupted during the transfer they probably wouldn't be recognizable at all.

    OK, thanks. I was figuring it was Dazzle and not Fetch anyway. Now that I've figured out what I was doing wrong with Fetch I can experiment with some more Dazzle retouches to see what works and what doesn't. Thanks
