  • Colors are different on other people's computers!?

    I recently created a website (http://www.rjonesatty.com) for my father. It's a pretty simple site by design, but for some reason the colors appear almost green on some computers instead of brown and silver the way it looks on mine.

    Any ideas about why that is or how to fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't understand what's causing the colors to change, my guess is the settings on other people's monitors but I don't know

    Hi there mjones44,

    I don't know the colours to which you are referring.
    Your page is basically just two background images which look OK to me.

    What should be of greater concern to you, though, are the coding errors
    that your page contains....

      Looks like the errors are mostly with the Schema tags. I'll have to work those out, just started on that today. But the images didn't show up greenish on your computer?

        Your chrome.jpg is actually a gif image with an incorrect extension.

        The color reading for the pixel positioned at 200,200 of the chrome.gif, it is....

        Do these values match yours?

          Cleaned up the coding a little bit. Hahaha wow. You can tell I'm not too good with photoshop. I'm not sure how to go to a specific pixel, I tried to line up on the pixel grid but the hex codes were different than what you put.

          Anyway, I saved them both as a jpg (for sure a jpeg this time lol) for web, so maybe that fixed it?

            Hi there mjones44,

            I used IrfanView, an excellent, simple to use and FREE image editor for my tests on you images.

            The first thing it did was inform me of the chrome image problem.
            Selecting a particular pixel was also no problem for the program.

            You can get it here...

            It is not a replacement for Photoshop but is still a very useful and much used tool.

              Hahahaha I'm dumb sometimes. You were right on the money, thanks coothead. You saved a lot of frustration and hair lol. Well now it's still ugly, but at least it looks the same on everyone's computer

                    I think it is happening because every display has own collibration
