Image Question - Background Goes From White to Black


After downloading all my PB images ... and having the same image in several albums for different boards, I noticed that sometimes the exact same image can have a different look to them. Normally they have a white background, but some of the copies have a black background ... it doesn't seem to effect the image when opened up though. It's just the way are in the folder.

Anyone know why/how this happens? How to fix it? I usually move the odd images to a spare folder, and then recopy the normal image to that same folder and that fixes the problem. However, it seems that more and more of the images are suddenly showing a black background, and I'd really like to know the cause so I can prevent it from happening. Especially before I upload them to a new site.


As for why I copy the same image/s to different folders ... it's so each board has their own set, which would keep the bandwidth usage down.

Re:


I have had this happen and I have no clue why, either. Doing a Google search, it sounds like a common problem, but I still am unsure why. It usually happens with transparent backgrounds for me. I do the same as you, with copying the normal picture to the folder, but I throw away the odd ones.

I made sets of images for each board, too.

Re: Image Question - Background Goes From White to Black


Jox, are the backgrounds really white? Or are they transparent?

Transparent backgrounds will change to black if the images are converted to jpg.

Re: Image Question - Background Goes From White to Black


@Lesa: I'm pretty sure they're transparent. I didn't switch them over, so I don't know how that could have happened.

The weird thing is, I can copy the distorted image to a new folder, and sometimes that fixes the problem. What could be switching them back and forth from gif to jpeg?

Okay. When I hover over the distorted images, it says 'gif' ... and when I open it, it is a moving gif with a white background ... well it looks white to me. Scratch that, it's a bluish grayish color. It shows up against the black browser background when I open them up in Firefox.

There is no difference between the two twin images when I open them up. Only in how they look side by side in a folder. One has a 'white' background, and the other has a 'black' background. Both have a bluish grayish background when opened up, which I'm assuming is due to being a transparent image. *shrugs*



@Susa: I'm saving them for now, but will most likely delete them later.

It might be easier to figure out if I had video of what's going on.

I can also copy the image to the same folder, and the copies show up normally.

Lesa: I don't know how to do video on the computer. I could do a screen cap, but I don't have a new account yet.

If you still have my email address, you can send screen caps to me.

I think I do. I plan on creating an account soon, so I can upload them there to share for everyone in this thread.

Lesa: Could it be something done during the downloading process from PB?

Re: Image Question - Background Goes From White to Black


I haven't decided what site I'm gonna use for images, so I uploaded it to PB for now:

[sign in to see URL]


I moved the 'black' images to a new folder, and they kept the 'black' ... but when I copied the same image to the same folder, they show up as the originals appear. And there's no difference between them when I open them both up in a browser.



[Edit]

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
