Is there a way to fix that? Because, when I go to look at them not only does their picture not load but all the other pictures for all the other plugins don't load either! Then it slowes down my computer!!!!!!!!!! evil

This seems to only be a problem on IE. You can fix it by restarting your browser. It seems that some of the preview images are incorrectly formated. IE cant cope with this and then refuses to display any other images.

I am currently locating the broken images and then I will try to fix them

UPDATE

The were a couple of strange formated images like I thought. Ive fixed them now and everything should be fine

On some of the more recent plug-ins I did, I used the Save For Web option in Photoshop when I was creating the preview images. Is that why there was a problem? Should I just use regular jpegs, then, Malone?

Sorry about causing a problem for you guys. sad crazy tard

All the images display for me. Except the lightsword ring preview (It didnt have a cross at the top right hand corner it was just blank.) but it works now.

Axeman: Yeah it seemed to be a couple of your recent plugin preview images. The header field appeared to be corrupt, although I expect it was just photoshop adding random non-standard stuff.

A similar thing happened a while back with a few of sidewinder/mechaforces plugins, their Mac added strange things to the file which just confused IE.

Best to stick to normal jpegs where ever possible.

Okay. I've got a really slow connection (21.6K), and I can get smaller file sizes (which upload faster) using the Save for Web option, but obviously if the images aren't working it isn't a good idea. I'll just save them as straight jpegs from now on.

Kinda funny that the save option designed specifically for the internet is the one giving us problems. smile
