    Default Different colour shades when shown in different browsers

    Hi guys,
    I seem to be getting differences in shading when viewed in different
    browsers, ie. fine in chrome/firefox/safari but different in IE.
    Check out the background of the nav bar here:

    Also... just noticed that the home button changes slightly in Chrome!

    Any ideas?
    Steve.

    You may see differences in different versions of the same browser too

    You are also going to get different colors from different monitors and video cards.

    There are very few users who calibrate their monitors using external color sampling and reference them to a known standard. I do, but I am not your typical user. In fact, I have a dedicated monitor just for color work (LaCie Electron blue IV)

    You might want to calibrate your monitor and take another look at your work.

    Hmm,
    Had a go at screen calibration and as it turns out it was pretty much spot
    on!
    So... checked the colour profile I was using in photoshop for the images and
    I was using the adobe rgb profile instead of the srgb profile, so changed
    it.
    Then I had an idea!
    I grafted the button dividers onto the background image and then made
    transparent png button images.
    Seemed to work fine in the style view and page view, but unfortunately the
    text disappears when published!
    Isn't this the same problem other people are experiencing?

    Steve.
    p.s. some good ideas there though, thanks.

    Yes, the transparency issue is a know bug that will be addressed by an update to the product.
