When I try to import images in my graphic boxes by import command, or by “Drag and drop” the images get fuzzy.
I tried .tiff, .jpg, psd, pdf graphics, giff, svg, Illustrator all with the same results. it happens especially when I try to resize and all the time when I update and resample. I even tried with some success to size each image to the size of the box. It kind of works but not 100%.
Regardless of how I place the images in the respective graphic boxes, they look relatively sharp until I update or resample the site. Than they all go out of focus and I have to place load them again, and again and they are still fuzzy and I go crazy… I run out of excuses and now my client is asking me to rebuilt the whole site in Dreamweaver. I don’t know what to do anymore.
You can see the site here:
They are probably being converted to JPEG, and that’s notoriously very
hard on sharp-edged graphics like logos. GIF or PNG is a much better
choice for anything with type or other straight and curved lines.
Anything with pictures of curly hair and trees is a good candidate for
JPEG – it’s specifically optimized for fractal details. Click once on
each image, and look in the third tab from the left (Output). Change
the format to GIF or PNG and upload again. Crispy!

Yes we had that discussion the last time that Dan posted about this - and naturally I assumed that he had done that - bit it appears now that I re-examine not all were changed to the appropriate format.
To be honest Dan I am surprised that your client has not commented on the amount of unsearchable (graphic) text.
You are not doing their site many SEO favours in that regard.
