Hello everyone! I have a minor bug which I hope has a quick fix. It seems that when I'm viewing my website on any internet browser (IE & Firefox) on PCs, everything looks as it should, however when viewed on Safari on MAC the background of the entire website does not match the background of the individual jpgs within the site. Here is what I mean...
PC:
http://www.photocs.net/untitled-1.jpg

MAC:
http://www.photocs.net/Imagen-1.png

I used dreamweaver to build the site without any prior website experience and the actual site URL is found here (http://www.photocs.net).

I thank you all for your help ahead of time!

Are you using save for web and devices? also remember that particularly on contiguous areas of colour jpeg will not exactly reproduce colours.

crop your panoramic to remove all the background and apply a margin-top to the div of around 220px. as for the other images then would be better saved as gifs to preserve the background integrity - the drop shadow should reproduce ok with a 256 colour palette. or use 8-bit png (*note* - not 24 or 32 bit png)
