I've a problem with Adobe Fireworks CS5 when I save an image in .gif extension.
I open a .gif image with Fireworks and if I look at properties of image (tab optimize) these are: format: gif, palette: exact, number of colors 46.
Then, if I would to save this image with another name, I press CTRL + SHIFT + S , and, in the dialog windows I choose: format GIF, palette: exact and I save with the new name.
When I open the new file saved with Firework and I look at the tab optimize the properties are: format: gif, palette: exact, number of colors 14, and the image is a loss quality image.
I want to know why when I save in .gif format there is a loss in the number colors?
Can somebody help me?
If I export a GIF from Fireworks and then open it again in FW after export, I get the exact number of colors I exported it with. Where are you looking at the color numbers? In the Optmize panel or the Export Preview panel? Do make sure that the Loss value is set to 0.
When I look at the color numbers in the Optimize panel, before to save in .gif it's 49.
When I look at the color numbers in the Export Preview panel when i,m saving in .gif, it's 49.
If I look at the color numbers in the Optimize panel, when I open the file that I exported in .gif, it's 14.
The loss value is set to 0.
I don't know what to tell you. I can't reproduce the problem on my machine.
