If you are using the America Online browser, images on some web pages may appear distorted or blurry.
This is due to a default setting in the AOL browser which is set to compress web graphics.
While this over-compression allows images to download and display faster, it also destroys the color palette on a lot of images, causing them to appear distorted or blurry.
To disable this feature do the following:
AOL 3.0 - Click the 'Prefs' button at the top of your AOL browser as shown below.
AOL 4.0 & Up - Click the 'My AOL' button at the top of your AOL browser, and select preferences as shown below.
AOL 4.0 & Up - The Preferences window will appear as seen below.
Click the 'WWW' icon. The AOL Internet Properties window will appear as shown below.
AOL 3.0 & Up - Click the 'Web Graphics' tab and uncheck the 'Use compressed Graphics' box as shown below.
Click 'OK'. You should now be able to view images as they were intended to be seen.
If images continue to appear distorted or blurry, you will need to clear your InterNet cache. To clear the cache, do the following:
AOL 3.0 - Select the Advanced tab in 'Prefs' - then click 'Purge Cache'.
AOL 4.0 - Select the General tab in 'WWW', then click 'Delete Files'.
