I am using FW cs4 and have a problem. When I hit F12 , it lauches the browser but nothing shows up. In chrome there is a tiny little red broken image icon, similar to the little red x in IE, In firefox it just shows noting. I am trying to use one of the menubar presets #4 I did notice somthing. THe file type is a .png when I saved it to the root folder but when I hit f12 and right click on the little broken image icon to save as it says it is a .tiff. I dont know if the preview exported image is a .tiff and the browser cant read it or the little ion is the .tiff.
I really need a little help here. I need the preview functionto work properly, I have done every search I can think of, to no avail.
Browsers need a plugin to read TIFF files, so that's probably what's causing the problem. Choose File > Image Preview to check to see if the export settings have accidentally been set to TIFF format.
I thought it was wierd that the right click save images as was a .tiff. I knew that browsers cant preview a tiff. Thanks for the help. I dont remember ever seetting that option to tiff. It must be the default. So for building for web what format should I be previewing/exporting menu bars in. I currently have it set Jpeg but not sure how the html is exported as png or jpeg. I am sure I have full control, Will be doing more research. Thanks so much for your time. It worked like a charm.
