    I have tried to upload animated gifs and jpeg pictures with Fetch 3 and 4 using settings "Automatic" and "Raw Data" but my browser still can't display them. Can anyone help?
    Thanks

    Be sure to have the correct extensions (.gif, .jpg) on the files.

    Also, can you view them directly with a browser (i.e. yourdomain.com/image.gif)? If so, check your html code.

    Can you post the urls?

    The url is www.pqh.com.
    I can preview the page in the Netscape browser with in Dreamweaver but the pictures come up broken with I upload them.

    The problem is your html code -

    <img src="jackhammer.gif">

    The graphic has to be in the same directory or folder as the html document that is calling it or the browser will not find it. This is the same for Dreamweaver, or any other GUI html editor as well as any web browser.
    You best bet for easy proofing and uploading is to create a mirror of your website on your computer. You can even go so far as to name the folder www.dotcom.com. Have you html in this folder with a sub folder for your graphics and media. Then when you call the file from your hardrive, or on the web, it will pull the same path and you'll have less problems.

    Example:
    <img src="http://www.twguild.com/pics/fetch.jpg">
