Background image not showing in IE

 12:59 pm on Jul 5, 2011 (gmt 0)


I have a problem, my css contains background-image ... which works fine in Firefox, but when it comes to IE (I've tried with IE8 and IE6) it doesn't work.

It doesn't even work when I type in the exact URL of the images in IE. It just shows a crossed image placeholder.
On the other hand Firefox displays the image if the address is typed in.

The site is septima.com.mk

You can see the difference if you open it with both browsers, I haven't tested it with any other so I don't know the results.

You will probably be able to see the code, but if you need it I can post it here.



Thanks in advance

Have you saved the images as CMYK instead of RGB [webmasterworld.com ]? If so then they won't display in IE so load them back into your paint package and save them as RGB.

Your logo image is 580k and for an image that size I would be looking at 5k - 15k without visible loss of quality.;)

What is the file typ eof the image? Gif, Png, Jpg?

There are some types of image encoding that don't work with IE. I would try swapping the images out with ones you know will work and see if that changes anything.

May be your server or as mentioned, file size . . . I noted at least one image that didn't show anything but the file name then snapped in 10 seconds later (the contact one)

Problem solved

Thanks a lot Paul_0_b

It turns out my images were really in CMYK. I never new that that could be an issue.

Thanks to everyone for the replies
