Default fuzzy images on remote server

Hey
I was just noticing that my remote files are of better quality than they are when I put them on the remote server.
I also notice the size is a little larger when viewed on the remote server which is most likely the cause for the distortion...
here is an example
sorry it is so big but I wanted you to get the full picture


here is the html
it is basic just to test the images
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<img src="header.jpg" width="884" height="160" />
</body>
</html>


any ideas?

It looks like you're using the img height and width attributes to resize the image. That's not a good idea. You should save the image at exactly the size you will be using it online.

Hey!
Thanks for replying!
I am not sure I follow though
884 x 160 is the actual dimensions of the image.

I built that page just for the header image to test it.
The html above is the entire page so that is all there is to it...
I thought it would make it easier to diagnose the problem...

HTML Code:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<img src="header.jpg" width="884" height="160" />
</body>
</html>
here is the actually header image

It looks fine to me. Have you zoomed your browser?

it isn't distorted much just a little bit as seen in the original image in first post...
It couldn't be due to zoomed browser because local and remote viewing is both done with the same browser...

at first I thought it was a setting in the wrapper or body div. That's why I created a new html file to eliminate that as a possibility...
It is as barebones as I can make it yet there problem still exist...

referencing my first post I meant to say,"I was just noticing that my local image files are of better quality when viewed locally than they are when I put them on the remote server."

might make that part easier to understand...

AAAAAHA!!!!!!!! It was the firefox zoom feature!
I tested it in IE and it was working fine so then I reset the zoom in FF and now all is well! I guess it must have been on like 101% zoom or something.
It is odd however that the zoom only was applied to remote sites and not local files... you would think it would have applied to anything within the browser window....
Another problem solved! Come on weekend I am READY!
;o)
