    slicing images in fireworks, and the results aren't so great

    hi everyone,

    i'm doing a layout for a site, and the graphic artist gave me a png image to use to slice the logo etc.

    so i'm slicing huge chunks of the png in fireworks to make my layout work. however I noticed something i didn't like in the preview.

    look here: http://www.kasharocks.com/look.jpg
    (you might have to hit 'ctrl +')

    do you notice on the left side how the gradient is not so much a gradient anymore? from left to right you see colour panels, rather than the gradient design she wants.

    when i optimise the images in fireworks I chose gif- adaptive - 256 colors - 0% dither with no loss.

    why is fireworks slicing the images this way?

    i've resolved this, gradients should always be saved as jpegs.

    for all those reading this, thanks for looking!

    It depends, I use JPG or GIF for gradients. Try 'exact' instead of 'adaptive'.
