    These are two of the 655 that are broken, but actually exist in good condition. I have to figure out how to repair the database. Please don't worry about those at the moment. I have a list of exact which are broken.

      Let me know if/how I can help, Berry. Perhaps I could try resaving the images on my machine and re-uploading them? I don't know. Database stuff is waaaaayyy over my head.

        I think the problem maybe that the affected images are in .GIF format rather than .JPG. I don't know why this should cause a problem - nor have I checked every 'broken' image to confirm this, but the few I've looked at did seem to be that way.

        I saved the editorial pages from NW 156 in the 'Introductions' album as .GIFs, opened them in Photoshop and then, because I couldn't automatically re-save them as .JPGs, copied & pasted them into new files, which I then saved as JPGs before uploading back to the Hive.

        That's fine maybe for a handful of images but to do it on the scale Berry's talking about - there should be an easier way.

        PS. The .GIF images aren't as good quality as the .JPGs after they've been copied & pasted btw.

          Certainly not. Just about every time you resave, you lose quality. It gets worse when you change formats without making the proper adjustments. Add to that the fact that .gifs only have 256 colors and you can see why the .gifs start looking poopy. This is esentially why I offer my services in this area. I do imaging for a living and have special actions set up in Photoshop which greatly cut down on my processing time.

                  Gotcha. : )))
                  You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.
