I Am Confused  
I know its hard to imagine, me, confused, lol.

Anyway, I 'save' my icons/art as so .png but when i upload them on tinypic i always get the .jpg extension and i have no idea why. i tried to see if there was some setting that could be changed but that isn't the case. i know for a fact that tinypic can and will give you the .png ext. but it won't for me so if anyone has any insight as to why that is please let me know.

no idea. I have problems uploading png in tinypic, it never let me.
I recomend you to use photobucket for png ;)

well i guess i am glad that it isn't just me but i know that others can and it frustrates me. the problem with photobucket is that i have everything already set up at tinypic, like folders and things. i guess i will just have to jump to PB if i can't figure out the TP thing.

Will you walk me through how you save and upload your icons? Maybe there's something you're missing...
Heather: jessicasetentpet on August 1st, 2009 06:49 pm (UTC)

step 1: go to file --> save for web
step 2: it takes you to the next page where i have it set to 'preset png-24' then hit 'ok'
step 3: takes you to where you actually save it so i name the file with a .png and the 'save as type' part says 'images only (*.png)

so that is the saving process.

then i just go to my tinypic page and upload it. once it is uploaded it even says in like the file info .png, it just doesn't give me the file extension. :/

OH. Yeah, I've got a couple people at my limsies that don't have extensions on the end of their tinypic URLs so I don't think you're alone in that. Is the quality degrading upon upload or are you just frustrated by the lack of an extension?
Heather: jessicasetentpet on August 1st, 2009 07:07 pm (UTC)
i don't think the quality is gonig down i think it is mainly i am frustrated with having to have a .jpg tag. lol. plus i didn't really 'know' if the quality was decreasing. i didn't think my icons looked bad or anything but i didn't know is they could be better because they weren't being uploaded with .png tag.

yeah, I just checked and it did it to me, too.
I hate when I have to uproot everything, but I second the recommendation to try out PB. Course, if you can deal with the inconsistent tags, no need to change. :P

yeah i might just try that. did you notice any quality change?

No, actually.
I'm not particularly discerning, though. :P
