Sam, Jim,

 

Thanks for your help guys.

 

I have managed to resolve the issue with images not appearing on my site. You were right the wrong colour combination had been used and that is why the images were not being displayed. Howyou managed to find that out I have no idea! Eitherway i owe yo ua big thank you. :rolleyes:

 

One side note, is there a way that the images can be displayed a bit more better as when they are shrunk they do not look that good?

 

Regards. Barry.

The color mode chosen (YCbCrk) for your images was derived from RGB, not supported by all versions of IE and suported only in Firefox 3 and above. Thus, re-saving them to jpeg format will not work, at least not directly. Doing so will save them back to the same color mode.

 

However, there is a way to convert JPG(YCbCrk) to JPG(YCbCr)

 

Using Irfanview, a free image editor, you can do batch conversion.

 

Your original pictures JPG-->convert them to ---> PNG or GIF--->convert them to-->JPG

 

After the conversion, the quality of the images is virtually the same from the original, smaller file size,

and works with IE.

Bryce,

 

That worked a treat. It was really easy to batch convert the images to the correct format. Thanks for that!

 

Moving on, I have noticed that a competitors site has much smaller images that on my site. Would you or anyone else have an idea how they managed to keep the images looking so viewable and at the same time made them small? I am concerned about naming them as they may not like it buy the url goes like snore and then the word store and is a uk domain.

 

Thanks and regards. Peter.

I have built an online store solely with the help of this forum.

Hello,

 

I have a site in oscom and have the same problem like you had on www.kimcairy.com, can you please tell me how did you fix the problem ?

 

Thanks.

 

I did not reply to any other post in this thread, I do not use IE7, and the site mentioned is not mine.
