jpg and gif distortion on webpage

    Hi,
    First, I don't know if this is the appropriate group for this
    question. Perhaps it should be directed to an html NG or maybe one
    concerning graphics, but anyway....

    In keeping up a webpage for a baseball league I often copy tables from
    Excel 97 and then paste the image into IRFANVIEW. I save it as a gif
    file and use my web editor to insert that graphic.

    This always works very well for small to medium size images.
    Typically I get good resolution if I've copied a block of cells 20 x
    9, so 180 total cells.

    Recently I decided to try the same technique to publish rosters. This
    entailed 20 x 40 cells. Whether I save this as a gif file or a jpg
    file the result when viewed in IE or any of the other browsers I have
    access to always results in a squished, unnatural, and not very
    readable image.

    Any thoughts on a way to accomplish this?
    I know I could use Excel to just save it as a webpage but I don't much
    care for the look of those tables and some names come out on one line
    while others take up two.

    Any help is appreciated.

    This newsgroup is appropriate for any topic. ;)

    Are you hand coding, or using a WYSIWYG editor?

    It is.

    Could be an idea to ask in an HTML group, but someone will ask for the
    URI as well.

    It's not easier to simply make it text in a table. It sounds exactly
    like a real table layout should be used for.

    The URI is? The editor is?

    The widths for the table / cells are fixed / percentage, all add up
    correctly i.e. table fixed at width X and a graphic width X+Y in size.

    >file the result when viewed in IE or any of the other browsers I have


    As it sounds not to be an IE problem, Could be the HTML has height /
    width dimensions set smaller than the real size.

    (For IE it would be something like Tools / Options / Advanced /
    Multimedia / tick/untick Enable Automatic Image Resizing)

    Apply - same for any table used for layout :)

    I hadn't put it up on the web since its appearance wasn't great but
    now I've done so that you can see it:
    http://www.hvinet.com/dr4sight/rostcbl_temp.htm

    As an example of a smaller table that looks much better and done with
    the same technique:

    Again, thanks for the feedback.

    Instead of making *pictures* or screen shots of your tables, copy the tables
    into html.

    Many will disagree with me, but for your purposes, you might want to
    investigate FrontPage. There, you could create a table, and copy and paste
    the information.

    FrontPage isn't the monster some purport it to be!

    It's being squished by the browser HTML because of
    it's size. If you save the image and view it, it looks fine.
    Don't specify an image size, and it displays correctly.

    <img src="rost_cbl.gif" border="0" align="bottom" alt="">

    Not sure what your technique was, but the image that looks good has its size
    set a bit larger that actual. The one that looks bad has the height set in
    the html as 1600, actual height 2471. just too much of a squeeze. The
    picture looks fine set to actual dimensions.

    I'm unaware of how to set it to "actual dimensions."

    Mike,
    While I appreciate all the help and feedback that I've received today,
    you're my hero.

    I put in the line as you have it above and voila the page shows up
    just as I wanted it to (in fact, even better).

    I renamed it for our league members so it's now at:
    http://www.hvinet.com/dr4sight/rostcbl.htm

    Thanks again.
    In my book you're all geniusses.

    Ah, but you don't need to now, Mike's method works just as well and is
    easier in practice!

    Anyway for future reference, the line that loaded the picture looked like
    this:

    <IMG SRC="rost_cbl.gif" BORDER="0" WIDTH="1471" HEIGHT="1600" ALIGN="bottom"
    ALT="">

    Your picture's dimensions were width=1471 x height=2141, so when the page
    loaded the image height was compressed from 2141 down to 1600 causing what
    appeared to be poor image quality.
    Setting it to actual dimensions would have entailed editing the HEIGHT=
    parameter so the line would have read:

    <IMG SRC="rost_cbl.gif" BORDER="0" WIDTH="1471" HEIGHT="2141" ALIGN="bottom"
    ALT="">

    Thanks for picking this up. I was stuck doing my XHTML 1.0 course work.

    The only hard bit was having to go back to nested lists and using the
    (yuck) font command, it's taken ages to unlearn things just to do the
    assignment.
