Hello to the TIFF recomender,

Guess you have an enourmous disk space available, usually people cannot afford store 
images in TIFF format... we have to cope with jpg and gifs.

The IE5 supports transparency in pictures very well, that's the informaton stored 
within the graphic :) try a gif format and u may smile. Even fuzzy color transparency 
with variations in percentage can be set (although with Corel 8 stored pictures have 
problems with storing the transparency afterwards, as it reduces the color model to 
256 and due to that, the transparency values are displayed grey in the output image of 
the IE5. Is there any script available to fuzzy select regions of similar color 
values, whereby the color values shall range in a percentage rate of 20 than the 
actual (fuzzy) selected pixel color value ?

Happy tiff-ing/ gif-ing
Juliet
