it may be my tired old eyes, but you may have to point out which box it is you're talking about - it must be very ninor because I can't see anything with any of the boxes :-)
Hi Nadia; it's the main content area box, the top and bottom 50px are separate image files and the main content is tiled vertically. I've noticed that when I trim the canvass in Fw that often little minor changes like this are made to the hexidecimal settings. Here, however, I chose not to and yet still got a similar result...
I see it...in the main pink area. (But my monitor has really good color.)
The problem is that the colors in the three images do not have the same hexidecimal values.They are:
top ff d5 f3
tile ff d2 f2
bottom ff d6 f3
How did you export? Did you use "exact" palette? Did you export the three images together or one at a time? Did you export just the pink images or were there other images in the export, too? It is very odd, though, that FW would output slices from the same object in different colors. What is the color in the original image?
I understand why you see what you're seeing, but I'll agree that it's perplexing that the images got exported that way!
Thanks Pixlor, I used "adaptive." Usually I don't even change this setting...
Okay. Adaptive gives FW the latitude to modify the colors. I think there's a way of protecting a color in FW, but it would probably just be easier to rexport with "exact palette." Once done, pull the .gifs back into FW and check that the colors didn't shift. If they did, copy the pink object to a separate document, verify that the color is correct, reslice, and export all three slices - simultaneously - using an exact palette.
Maybe someone has a more elegant solution, but using exact palette should work for you. *crosses fingers*
You can lock the colors so they don't change on export. Choose File - Image Preview. On the left, you'll see a panel with all of the colors contained in the image. If you click on the image, you'll notice that the color under the spot you clicked on becomes highlighted with a box. Once a color is highlighted, you can click on the little lock icon below the panel to lock that color in. That will prevent Fireworks from changing it when it is sorting colors for elimination.
Export right from the Export Preview window.
Just out of curiosity, why are you using Alpha Transparency instead of Index Transparency?
I never use index transparency; I'm not even sure I know what it is, even though I've read the definition many times. Usually the problem with the exact palette option is I have more than 256 colors so FW ignores it. In the end I didn't need any transparency anyway, so I just saved with none and it's fine now. Not sure what the moral is to this story, however...
