A Day in the Life of a Developer
Well I was just designing the new look and feel of a project I have started and it required the use of some gradients images. Now the problem was simple I had a background colour and I needed to fade this to white in my footer (Please see image below). So I created the gradients in PS and saved it as a png.
Upon loading it in FF all was good, but loading it in IE showes the gradient image was not only darker than that in FF but it didn’t blend with the underlying base color.
I strached my head for quite a while and in the end learnt the following.
IE .png palette has a bug in which it cann’t display the gAMA chunk of the image. This causes them to be rendered incorrectly.
Now there are two possible fixes for this.
First of all I want to apologise for my site being down for so long. 3 weeks ago I went on holiday but sadly had a bad accident so have been unable to do anything until now. But all is well now so things are back on track.
I know some of you contacted me personally about problems and alike and I will try to reply asap.
