    Photo appears corrupt on website

    For some odd reason this photo appears to be corrupt on my website.
    Any ideas as to the cause of this?
    It looks fine when l view it in photoshop and Dreamweaver

    see attachment.

    Never seen this, so I admit I'm fishing. Is it possible that it DID get garbled when you uploaded it? How about deleting it from your domain and uploading another copy - are you on dialup? Sometimes modems do strange things.

    I have tried this. I will try re-naming then upload the files.

    Thanks.

    If a new copy of the file with the same name hasn't made any difference, it may be because the original version is still in your browser cache. Try clearing the cache, and/or hold down CNTRL while you click on Refresh.

    This appears to do nothing. I will re-ftp files.

    Re: Photo appears corrupt on website

    If it's any consolation, I have exactly the same problem with photos on my website. The originals are fine, but when uploaded to the web server, they become corrupt in much the same way as yours have. Re-uploading the files is on my to-do list but I haven't tried it yet. The problem seems worse with larger pictures, and the corruption is always in the form of horizontal banding, like in the picture you displayed. (More examples here if that helps).

    Out of interest, are you using any fancy ftp software? Personally I'm not, I'm just using the DOS-like ftp program built into Windows. I'm wondering if this might be the cause of the problem, but I would have thought that keeping it simple by using this would avoid such problems, rather than cause them...

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    Re: Photo appears corrupt on website

    I am using Ace ftp.

    The file size is larger also with photos l am uploading, as l am using a higher resolution camera. Maybe l will change the camera resolution to a lower one next time
    l take photos for the website.
    Thanks for that advice.

    Re: Photo appears corrupt on website

    I have tried to re-upload the photos but no luck. I have an idea and that is to re-name the files so there are no spaces and see if that works.
    Have you tried this?

    Justin.

    As it happens, none of the file names of my photos have spaces in. It may be worth clearing your cache though to make sure that your browser isn't looking at a stored version of the old image. (Altenatively, go ahead and rename the file, as this would also solve this problem).

    Fingers crossed... <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    Re: Photo appears corrupt on website

    Good morning fellas. Say, I just had a thought that I have no basis in technical knowledge for. You BOTH mentioned the large, high resolution of the pictures but the examples (here in the thread and on Dave's web) show properties as a smaller size than I would consider "large." Do you possibly have an HTML rendering problem where the actual pixture might be large, such as 1600 x 1200, but the HTML code of the page used to display it is rendering the picture at a much smaller size? I don't know what would happen if one were to cross some hidden barrier of conversion.

    Here in the Lounge, it is displayed at its full size. I wonder whether Dreamweaver is automatically downsizing the image, and messing it up in the process?

    Re: Photo appears corrupt on website

    <hr>...it is displayed at its full size... <hr>
    Yeah, that's what I meant by high resolution. I was prompted by Dave's comment and the display size of the pictures on HIS web page. The picture here in the Lounge is 490 x 368 and 24 bit and that's not what I would consider high resolution. But I don't know what would happen if the ACTUAL pictures he uploaded were considerably larger and being rendered to some smaller size by the HTML code on the web page. What made me think of it is the fact that I have two pictures of my grandsons on my web page and when I uploaded them they are 200 x 200 but the code I wrote for my web page specifies the sizes at 175 x 175. Obviously this doesn't distort the images but I wonder what would happen if the size difference were much more extreme.

    Here's an example. The very first pix on Dave's web page shows a web property of 300 x 276 but if I save the shot, it is 559 x 514.

    Re: Photo appears corrupt on website

    I agree, setting the width and height in the IMG tag to anything other than the actual width and height can lead to strange results. In this case, unfortunately, the file itself has a problem, so I think the poster will have to fix that first before turning to any other potential issues raised by the HTML.

    Added: Okay, I shouldn't be so certain, because the image was posted, not linked to the original. It would be useful to get the URL to the original to confirm how it appears to others.

    You're right, as I tried to visit Justin's site he's mentioned in other threads and I can't find the picture. I guess we'll have to wait until he responds to these hypotheses.
