Is there a way to keep iWeb from resaving graphics when I publish to my FTP space? I get jpg files that look different from the preview in iWeb. I have been going to my ftp space and uploading/replacing with the original file but that is tedious.

    Can you provide us with an example of what the orignal image looks like as well as the  uploaded image. How do the images differ.  What version of  iWeb and system are you running.


    Do you have iWeb's preferences set to optimize images on import?

    You can upload the images to the server and reference them in some code in an HTML Snippet...

    Any way you can create a transparent background header, png or gif format, with the other items showning so the background image can be used for the header background?  It would require a 3rd party image editor that supports layers or Pages from iWork but might do the trick if you can find out how to fixe the discrepancey 


    Here's a real, quick, crude attempt at what I'm referring to:

    So this is your page :



    Well, the problem could be that the background is a gif  and the header is a jpg.


    Different number of colours.




    Use a jpg as background.
