    Angry Help! Website disaster

    Hi,

    Something seems to be wrong with the images in my webpage. I'm not that great at designing (my page is still under construction), but I made a header and footer for some of the pages. When I view the site offline, it seems to look fine, but when I view it from the website, the images are blurry and distorted. Does anyone know what I did wrong? I saved the images as a .jpg.

    Here's the link to my site: <a href="http://www.mindytchieu.cjb.net">Mindy's Spot</a>. It's in the 'About', 'Me', 'Links', and 'Quotes' pages.

    Thanks to anyone who responds to this...

    It doesn't look all that blurry to me, either.

    You could always try saving the images in .gif format instead, as it generally results in crisper images when not many colors are used.

    Question

    Wow, that's odd! I checked both my PC and my laptop and they both show fuzzy images. Hmm...

    The "hello welcome...." looks a little blurry but this could just be from optimizing the image too much.

    A general rule to remember is:

    JPEG - For photos, or images with lots of different colours.
    GIF - For line art, or solid colors.

    This will help in the future
