Topic: Pixelated Images in IE Browser Only

For some reason my images are very pixelated in Internet Explorer.  The images look fine in Safari and on my iPhone and iPad.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

*Update: It's also slightly pixelated in Firefox.  What am I doing wrong?  Thanks.

Re: Pixelated Images in IE Browser Only

Try feeding SimpleViewer larger, higher-quality images (I notice that a couple of images in your gallery are only 30 - 40 kB in size) and ensure that imageSmoothing="TRUE"

Thanks, I'll give that a shot. I didn't think it would be image size because they look perfect in Safari and on mobile devices. (I'm looking at them in safari on a 27" apple display.)

I will use larger images just in case though.

Re: Pixelated Images in IE Browser Only

You could also try changing the Flash 'quality' param.
Possible values are low, autolow, autohigh, medium, high and best.
See here for details: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/127/tn_12701.h … ble_values

You should set the param in the following manner:

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var params={};
params.quality="best";
jQuery(document).ready(function () {
SV.simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "75%", "75%", "transparent", true, null, params, null, false);
});
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

Re: Pixelated Images in IE Browser Only

Thanks again!  I will certainly try that.  One question, do I replace "params" with "high/best/etc..." in your example code?  Or do I leave "params" and put the quality somewhere else?  Thanks again for your help.

Re: Pixelated Images in IE Browser Only

The 'quality' should be set on this line:

params.quality="best";

The default value is 'high' so I suggest trying 'best'.
