Uploading Images MAC vs. PC (4 posts)

    OK, here's the deal. I'm creating a simple webpage with some .gif images. I create the page on my MAC, test the HTML and everything looks fine. I upload the page using FETCH and used internet explorer on my MAC and everything looks great. Then I move across the room to my PC and none of the .gif images are loading correctly. Some of the images are acting as links to other parts of the page, or other pages, but some are just plain old images and none of them are showing up.

    I've read the help and am loading the images as Raw Data as suggested, but I've got nothing.

    Any ideas will be appreciated.

    Hi,

    Could you post the URL to the page with the problems so we could take a look at it and try to figure out what might be going wrong?

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Thanks for the link. We've looked at the webpages and GIFs and have confirmed what you're seeing - they look fine, except in Windows Internet Explorer. The HTML on the pages seems fine... the problems are in the GIFs themselves.

    We believe that whatever program created the GIFs has created them in such a way that they're not compatible with Windows IE; we do not believe the problem is in Fetch, because if they had been corrupted on upload, they wouldn't work in any browser.

    What program did you use to create the GIFs? Our advice is to try opening them in a different graphic editing program, re-saving them, and re-uploading them, and seeing if that helps. Or, if the program you are using offers options when you save the GIFs, you should try saving them with different options.

    Please let us know if you have any more questions. Thanks,
