It wasn;t much work just a simple frontpage one and i just got done uploading it and now there is a problem i have never seen before. it garbles the pictures when they are in full form....

I don't have any particular suggestions but I remembering this happening to some pictures of ours after they were put on a cd. Did you burn the pictures to a cd to move them?

they wern't on cd but were transfered via e-mail the interesting thing is that i can see them clearly in the file form on my computer but the second they are uploaded they turn to garbage

I haven't ever seen that happen..
I guess it must just be a bad file either try to reload it, edit and reload it, or get a different picture. It doesn't seem to be the internets fault. Maybe there is a problem with what your uploading it with. I really don't know.

I have seen that b4 it happened on my laptop. The images came fresh off the camera and a few months after that they started getting out of whack and dis colored the solution back them up onto a CD-RW cuz very rairly will something happen to the CD unless you do something to it, the pics i take from my cd come out just fine so i wouldn't go blaming the cd just yet unless you the cable to the drive is not seated rite or the program ure using is just acting funny, Im using Roxios Easy CD Creator 5 - updated version.
As for protecting it on ure PC well I haven't figured out how to keep them protected. move the web page to a different PC thats the only hing i can think of at the moment !

When you upload, you need to upload with the "Binary" setting enabled. Uploading with the "ASCII" setting will FUBAR it.

Is the homepage image really a 5mb file? Do yourself and viewers a favor and resize them down to about 400k. They will display fine.
Images displayed on the Web above 72 dpi resolution are pointless, so adjust your images. They will load faster and look just as well.
File format should be jpg or gif. If you have a copy of Photoshop, the best tool in the package is "Save for Web".
If you need a great FREE image program try this one out... http://www.irfanview.com/
