Oddity in display of Advanced Fade

I’ve used the Advanced Fade action in conjunction with the banner for a website I’m working on. The intent is that the background image for the site fades into the banner. When viewed in Freeway the effect is exactly what I want. When viewed in Safari that is not the case. I’ve uploaded two screenshots to my taliesinsoft iDisk and placed them into the Freeway folder there. If anyone can tell me what I can possibly do so that the viewing in Safari is the same as what is shown in Freeway I’d be most grateful!

Is the banner set to output as a PNG, millions of colours?

The banner itself is a .png. Should it be in a different format? If so what?

PNG is correct - just make sure that it is set for millions of colours to get the transparency.

Can you post the page online with HTML code set to more readable so that we can see the code.

Is the ‘background image’ for the page set as a true ‘background image’ ie nothing selected on page. Paintbrush icon and select your image in the Image selector.

I’ve placed the full site folder (just the master page and a single page) within the Freeway folder on my taliesinsoft iDisk. Included are the .png files for the banner and the background.

I’m only responsible for and developing the master page of the site, another party is filling in the individual pages.

I received a note from Joe Billings with instructions as to what I needed to do to make the site display as wanted. The fix was simply changing the .png files so that they displayed with millions of colors.

Another example of Softpress support that makes Freeway such a fantastic application for developing websites!

Is that not what I suggested in an earlier post?

Delta Dave,

Setting the image to a million colors .png is indeed what you suggested. A minor problem was that I didn’t know where the setting was. So I need to give you credit for being the first to make the corrective suggestion!

That is what we are here for James - sharing information when we can.

I only try and give back what I have received here.

Glad you are sorted and we look forward to seeing it once it is online.

Is it set to be OUTPUT as a PNG? It really doesn’t matter what format
you import, Freeway turns content into web-ready formats as part of
the publishing process.

Select the item on the Freeway page and look in the Inspector
palette. What format is it set to be made as? Only PNG set to
millions of colours can have variable transparency.

thatkeith,

Thanks for the reply. The problem has been solved by setting the .png to millions of colors via the inspector in Freeway.
