    I am having a problem with a sliced image it appears fine in IE but looks
    like a checker board in Netscape.

    Thanks in advance

    Why do you need to slice an image in the first place?

    I thought slicing an image helped lessen download time.

    You need more markup to put it back together.
    You need more http requests to get it in the first place.
    Compression is less efficient (I think)

    So no, it increases download time.

    (1) You didn't answer his question :~(

    (2) He did it because it looks cool :~)

    I copied and pasted his markup and it looks effective in IE6, although it's
    a lot of work for what he has achieved :~(

    No, it increases it. An HTTP request (and usually a new connection) has
    to be made for every slice instead of once for the whole image.

    No it isn't. Its a lot of work[1] for nothing.

    [1] Slicing up the image, NOT creating the graphic in the first place.

    The image was already sliced I'm just trying to get it together so it look
    ok in Netscape it's working fine in IE but there is a white space line
    between the top and bottom part of the graphic in Netscape.

    I have had this problem before with Netscape and thought someone here might
    be able to give me some advise on how to alleviate the line between the
    individual pictures.

    Also what would I need to do to not have to place then all in a row to stop
    the white lines between each picture?

    Thanks in advance

    The thing is your *Target Audience* won't be Netscape users, so don't worry
    about it.

    They'll all be using Internet Explorer browsers. <grin>

    I know.
    But this has happened to me before and am just trying to find a way to not
    have this happen for my own future reference.
    I can usually work something out with time but have spent the whole day just
    screwing around experimenting trying to fit it and getting nowhere but
    frustrated.

    Thanks in advance

    I had the same problem a while back - the image was delivered in slices -
    and I'm hopeless with graphical thingies. Some kind soul - from this group
    I think - glued it back together for me.

    If you can - make it one image. If you can't - get out your begging bowl.
    There are some that perform such tasks in exchange for money and/or sexual
    favours.

    Easy enough, just do a screen-capture from an IE browser and paste into
    'Photoshop' as one image. :~)

    The graphic was sliced I guess because it was used as a navigation bar when
    I got it.
    Had to scrounge around (know one that I can ask is around for the holidays
    till after the 1st) to get a blank piece that is why the picture doesn't
    show quite right in the first place.
    I guess I am just stubborn and am not going to let this $%^&*+ picture
    defeat me. I really just want to figure out why it was doing this. Yep I
    guess I could have just reassembled it in less then 1 quarter of the time
    that it ha s taken me not to get it figured out.

    Still looking for a solution to the problem no matter what it takes.

    Thanks in advance

    /bangs head

    Make it ONE image - for the sake of your visitors if for no other reason.


    Please don't top-post. Look it up in your favourite search engine to find
    out why.

    Which version of NS? Some earlier ones may sllice and dice.
    Looks fine in IE and Mozilla.

    Suggestion, instead of slicing, use an image map.
    No need to slice unless you want to make it difficult for art thieves, which
    doesn't stop a good thief.

    Why not put it back together with your image editor?
