Hello all, I have designed and sliced my website in photoshop but when I convert it to ImageReady and save it all the images turn out grainy.

I have tried using both JPEG and GIF to maximum quality and even tried disabling optimization but all the images still come out grainy.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I would really apreciate your help.

Thank you!

Hello kev09, Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

Hmmm, sounds like you've got all your bases covered. Is the original working image of high quality?

How about your local color settings? 16k, 32k, millions?

ImageReady? Wow, an old time favorite that I've not used in ages.

Are you making transparent backgrounds? Have you tried png format?

Thanks for your replies so far!

I'm using 16 bit color and have Adobe Photoshop CS3. Unfortunatly I can't use 32 bit color for ImageReady :(

Using png still comes out grainy but I really only want to use JPEG or GIF anyway.

I can't think of anything else it could be

I'd be willing to bet that it is the 16 bit color setting. Certain colors just don't display well at that setting if I remember correctly.
