    Question .png graphic is displayed differently in Firefox and IE.

    Hi,

    I am using a non-transparent (it has a white background) image overhere (the image is those textlines):

    http://www.limelight-studios.nl/SpoonBoy_high.html

    When I view the page in IE 7 and compare that to the view in FF 2, I have the impression that the text beneath the video is just a little darker in IE. Is it just an optical illusion? Nope ... I guess it isn't. So I would like to know if this is always the case with .png's when viewed in different browsers? And what can I do about it so both browsers display it the way I have intended it to?

    Thanks,

    Probably something to do with IE's interpretation of the colour profile.

    There's a program that can get rid of the attached profile to PNG images, but I can't for the life of me remember what it is right now. If no-one else reponds, I'll look it up for you tonight.

    It seems darker to me too. Have you tried using a GIF or JPEG to see if there is a difference with those as well?

    You will have to remove the gamma profile information from your PNG file.
