Hello: I am trying to build a web page, The .gifs display with no problem. The two .jpgs do not display at all, only a blank box. They are supposed to be on the same line and the formatting is perfect, but Dreamweaver does not display them on the same line. I am about ready to throw this software out! Can somebody please teill me WTF is going on here?
Nancy: Thank you for your response. I have no intention of posting a page to my site that does not work. I have set up THREE websites. I am familiar with HTML. My question is: WHY don't the .jpgs display in the Dreamweaver dual page or the Dreamweaver test website page? The .gifs and the .jpgs are in the SAME DIRECTORY on the disk. The .gifs are displayed properly, but the .jpgs are not displayed, only a blank box. The filenames are correct, and correct as per case. Additionally, when I tried to EXPORT one of the files as a .gif in photoshop, the drop-down menu DID NOT HAVE AN OPTION to export that file as a .gif. I am very frustrated right now.
I can appreciate that you're frustrated. We all have bad days. But in order to help you, we need to see your page. SaveAs test.hml. Upload page and supporting files to your server. When the question is answered, remove the test.html page from your server.
Without a link to the page so we can see in our browsers what you are seeing then all we can do is guess based on your description of the symptoms alone. Your description may be inadvertently incomplete, our guesses may be wrong and your frustration level will increase further.
Posting a link is not questioning your HTML abilities. It's helping us to help you. Many people post a link to a broken page in a temporary subdirectory of their site. Once solved, the page can be deleted.
If this is only affecting JPGs, my best guess is that the JPGs have been saved as CMYK, not RGB. But that might be barking up the wrong tree in the wrong forest.
With a link, we could work more quickly with you, avoid wild goose chases and keep your blood pressure in the healthy range.
I have just eaten and I am FIXED and have come back here to let you know. It dawned on me while I was eating dinner, and I tried it when I got back up here to the office. Now I'm logging back on here to clear it up. Yes John, your are correct.....I had forgotten to export the files as RGBs, as oppsed to CMYKs, which is what they were drawn in. That worked, and they all display now. Thank you all very much for your prompt replies and concern. You may want to pass this along to the powers that be......I am still frustrated by the fact that I can not export in .gif format out of Illustrator. I am still also frustrated that there is no "bend line" function in Illustrator. I've been beegin them for that for ages........
Best regards to all, Your're absolutely great.

File > Save for Web does that.

I assume you've posted that request in the Illustrator forum and posted a feature request?
PS what do you mean by a "bend line" function?
I've mentioned it before to live reps.
The old IBM Display Graphics program (long defunct) had it. You could draw any straight line, then release the mouse. Then when you place your cursor on the line, and drag it, the whole line would BEND perfectly between the end points without adding any anchor points. When you released the mouse, the line would stay bent. You could also bend it back. This is not like the Illustrator warp function. I absolutely loved it.
