Hooray for Alesis! Sadly for Alesis, its ‘people’ sent this out as a CMYK JPEG. Such a terrible error. CMYK JPEGs are a nightmare for poor bloggers. They look like JPEGs, act like JPEGs, but then don’t show up on half the web browsers out there.
Here’s one we converted to internet-friendly RGB format earlier this week:
Actually, thanks to us having nothing to do apart from check this sort of thing, Firefox 3.5 seems to be able to handle CMYK JPEGs. Impressive! Google Chrome can’t. Internet Explorer 8 can’t either. But Opera 9.64 can. Sorry, it’s not going to get any more exciting than this around here. Here are the findings in a list:
BROWSERS THAT CAN “DO” CMYK JPEGS
- Firefox 3.5
- Opera 9.64
BROWSERS THAT CAN’T “DO” CMYK JPEGS
- Google Chrome 2.0
- Internet Explorer 8
Sorry about this one.
