Hello. I am having trouble viewing images that i edit with Photoshop on my Mac when i try to view it on Internet Explorer and Firefox on my pc. However, when i reedit the image on my pc using Paint Shop Pro, i am then able to view the same image on Internet Explorer and Firefox on my pc. Has anyone ever had this problem?

I use a Mac , and use Photoshop ALL the time, and I've never had a problem. Are you saving the images as gif or jpg?

Are you saying that you can't view it on a PC after you upload it to your site or server?

What do you mean, you can't view it on your computer? You're using a Mac.

What ftp client are you using? Are you uploading it in binary mode?

I didn't know Firefox had an FTP client. Try downloading the trial version of interarchy at interarchy.com and see if that works because by what you're telling me, it doesn't make sense why it doesn't work for you.

What are you seeing on a Mac? a broken image?

Yes, I tried to load your image and I'm seeing that problem in Firefox, but it loads fine in Safari.

So try interarchy. The problem may be the Firefox FTP client.

First - try changing the image name to Inside_primary_online.jpg

Maybe it doesn't like all of those dots in there. It might be confusing it as to the suffix name.

I downloaded your image and checked it out in photoshop. You have the image mode set to CMYK. Change it to RGB and try that.

CMYK is the problem. Also, make sure you are saving the image by using "save for web" not "save" or "save as"

Exactly. I never thought that he may not be doing that. Also your image is about 335k. That's huge. When you save for web, save it as a jpg at 50% quality, and that will cut your image size in about half with almost no quality loss.
