I am sorry I cannot be of any more help, as you say it might be a vista thing.

It might be the files themselves,  as as you say 90% of the files are fine?

All I can suggest is that you save them as a gif file, as a png file has higher file guality.

Again, I am sorry that I cannot be of anymore help but I think that it is just one of those things in vista!

Kind regards

Sorry I cant offer any more info to the problem, since it may be a Vista thing.

However, dont save photos as .gif format - make sure they are saved as .jpg.
gif has insufficient colours to support photos, but do better at diagrams or web graphics, where less colours are needed.

Thanks for everyones' help  :)

They are saved as jpegs, so I'll have to resave them as .png, THEN re-save them as jpg despite the lossy format being used twice.
