Why does #CCCCCC appear as a different color in FF and IE?
In photoshop, #CCCCCC, (a gray) is a web safe color. I make an image with that background color, then, make the background color the same and its fine in FF. in IE, it shows up lighter.
Whats the deal?
Edit – I’m saving the files in PNG. Maybe its a different scale somehow?
Edit again – I found a fix, I just made the .png backgrounds transparent. I would still like to know why colors are different in IE though.
The problem has to deal with "Gamma correction," and the fact that IE doesn’t have a proper gamut setting (not sure about IE 8). I don’t really understand it that well, so as opposed to blabbing incoherently, here are two pages I found on it:
