    I have a problem matching colors when creating graphics for a website.

    When I create a graphic in Photoshop with the same background color as the web page it will be inserted in, then put the elements together in Dreamweaver, the colors don't seem to match.

    Anyone have the same problem?

    Thanks.......

    To put it bluntly: you can't change that... different computers "see" colors differently.. the best solution is to use a small gif of the background color you want as your background instead of a hex code. That will assure the computer sees the background the same color as it looks in photoshop.

    Don't forget, DW is going to use the 216-color web palette. You need to do the same in Photoshop. Set your color-picker to "web colors only" when designing strictly for a web page. You won't see nearly as much, if any, differences in colors between PS and DW.
