    Joomla in IE8 photo shrink to fit issue

    Hello!

    My name is Jessie and I am having a problem with how to work around an Internet Explorer 8 issue on my site.
    My site was built by a third party that has been unresponsive to my requests for help. I use the Joomla 2.5.19 and I do not know if this is a Joomla fix or a java fix or an html fix. I took over the joomla website to manage it but I am new to Website Development so I need some help.

    Please see the following link: http://www.concordproducts.com/image...igh/s-0105.jpg.

    In Firefox, Safari, and Chrome the very large image is automatically scaled to fit the screen and remains clear. However, in Internet Explorer 8, any high or medium resolution photos that are resized have jagged lines that appear and make my photos look like they are very poor quality.

    I have been searching and searching for fixes and I cannot find anything.
    Any ideas would be greatly greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Jessie

    I can't see the page - I'm getting a 404.

    Yeah - that new link leads me to a download of an image file - I don't think that's what you meant to do?

    The link that works to get to the site is http://www.concordproducts.com

    I have gone to the site and surfed through several pages, including http://www.concordproducts.com/produ...re-images.html

    none of the pages I looked at resize in my browser (Chrome)

    Yes.

    I should have updated this post. I forgot to.

    We originally wanted this page to have high medium and low downloads for printing purposes. The company we hired to build the site didn't make these links initiate downloads, they made the links simply view the photos in the browser. Until recently, I have been unable to figure out how to fix the function from viewing to downloading, so I was hoping this post would help me find a way around the IE8 viewing issue.

    Now, I found in my research that having the links feed back to a folder which has a .htaccess file in it that specifies .jpg's to be downloaded when clicked not only fixed the IE8 viewing issue by completely overriding it but also fixes the original issue that the website creator never finished to my liking.

    <FilesMatch "\.(?i:jpg)$">
    ForceType application/octet-stream
    Header set Content-Disposition attachment
    </FilesMatch>

    ... saved in a .htaccess file and placed in the same folder as the images works great!


    Thanks for your time in trying to help me but this case has been solved!
