 ??? Went on a little vacation this weekend. While at the hotel I thought I'd take a look at mine and Paint Basket's web sites to see how they looked. I was shocked that the one gallery image I had uploaded looked nothing at all as to what I had expected. I think this is just their computer graphics rendering but as I looked at the ads on some of the web pages they looked ok. Am I missing something? Should files up loaded into the gallery be of a specific type file format? Is there a way to ensure image files I upload to the gallery will be rendered properly over the internet on any display system? They looked great on my home computer system.

The best format to upload your photos is in jpg format.

Why they look different on another system,that is a difficult question to answer. It depends on the graphics capabilities of the computer, what setting the monitor has been set to, what quality the actual image is (you can save jpg's at varying qualities which changes the resolution of the image - ie - how grainy it will display).

Thank you, and I'm happy you like my avatar Sara!  :) Sorry for not responding sooner. I'm still learning how to get around on Paint Basket and practicing those new art techniques. It's like why does the time go by so fast when your having fun?
