So... I've created my beautiful, high quality graphic in Photoshop5 (windows), and I'm ready to save it to use it on my web pages. All my lovely embossing and drop shadows are great and I'm only using 2 colours: black 0,0,0 and yellow 255,255,0. I flatten my image and select file/export/gif89a. When I look at the resultant gif file in a browser (netscape or explorer), the quality has downgraded and where I had a nice smooth black shadow beneath my black text, it's gone all bitty.
I've tried fiddling with the 'system/exact' settings and the 'number of colours' etc, in the export dialogue box, all to no avail. Even exporting at the highest number of colours looks nowhere near as good as the view I have of the flattened image inside photoshop before I export it.
I'm sure it's something simple (and I'm just an idiot), but I'm not too hot on how to load pallets and the like (if that's what's causing the problem), so a step-by-step would be appreciated.
