images shows differently in IE.

  • # May 17, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    on my blog I have a few images in the yellow area. On Chrome the images display very crisp the way I want it to be. However, when I open the same blog through IE the images look real bad. Why does that happen? How can I fix it?
    thank you!

    It’s because you are making them scale down so much – IE is just having a hard time with it. The laptop image for example, its natural size is 591px × 609px but it’s being scaled to 75px × 75px.

    If you scale the images down to the right size in Photoshop or whatever graphics software then include them on your page you should see the difference.

    Not only that but you are also using up bandwidth and delaying display time by not resizing your images before you put them on your website. You should always optimize your images for the web and resize them.
