.png image turns into .jpg

Post by Caralel on July 12th 2014, 2:43 am

Hello there,

For some reason I am having trouble with hosting images. Simply put, I upload them as .png but then they turn into .jpg. For a while I have been using tinypic and such to get around this, but I would really like to start using the servimg.com hosting so I can see them in my administration gallery. Is there anything I need to know or do that answers why my .png images suddenly turns into .jpg?

Thanks.

Oh, maybe I should mention in detail.... I make sure it has .png as I host them, then it gives me a url (ex. http://i39.servimg.com/u/f39/18/90/34/56/110.png). But then when I copy this url and click the 'insert image' icon when submitting a post and paste the same url with no width or height change and click 'insert' it puts the [img] code into the message field correctly (ex. [ img]http://i39.servimg.com/u/f39/18/90/34/56/110.png[/img]). But when I submit the post and preview it all of a sudden it is a .jpg. After clicking on 'Edit Post' you can see that it has turned my .png into a .jpg so that it now reads [ img]http://i39.servimg.com/u/f39/18/90/34/56/110.jpg[/img].

Does this issue stop the image from appearing?

The image appears in the post, yes, but never as a .png image. Because of this, the image is always ruined. The transparency in the image is always colored by some made-up color (never the same color) because it has magically turned itself into a .jpg image.

Hi!

I have similar problem with my forum too. A lot of images are not shown (banner, icons etc.). I thought it had to do something with image hosting, but even new images i put do not show. It also does this that you mentioned with changing .png to .jpg (while still not showing anyting).
