View Full Version : IE is messing around with my PNGs, even with alpha hack

01-02-2006, 06:24 PM
I have a problem with some transparent PNGs I am using for my website. The transparency works fine with the AlphaImageLoader filter, but for reasons beyond me the images in IE are showing up in a darker shade of gray than in other browsers.

This is how they should appear as (viewed in Mozilla):


But in IE they appear as this:


The alpha parts of the image are in orange.

Is it a problem with the graphics program I am using (Photoshop CS) or is it a problem with the filter? What can I do to get round this problem?

Thanks in advance.

I used to have the same problem and I found it wasn;t only IE, but pretty much every browser except Safari, Firefox, and Opera. I would suggest using a transparent .gif instead.

I think, however am not completly sure because I am not much a graphics person, but I think you just need to "save for web" in Photoshop and it should work. If you really want to use a .png.
