Just a quick post about graphics. I woke up yesterday to seeing all my website graphics using gradients not displaying correctly. AGRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!! Then I found it only was affecting files on Linux servers. My asp site was fine!
What changed overnight? Anyone know? Please post if you have any ideas!
When I started checking other sites I found many other sites with the same problem.
I found a solution, and what a lot of work it was. For the background gradients I just opened the .gif files in Fireworks and saved them as .png files. For multiple layer files, I had to take the gradient layers of my PSD files and turn them into Fireworks .png files, then layer them back in to my PSD files. Then re-animated the ones with animation. I have most of the sites fixed now, still have some files to do.
I hope that this post is of use to other web designers. My goal is to be of help to our community!
