Vista web graphics

I've got an image on a website I'm building that looks fine on my Mac as well as in XP in Parallels. However, when my boss pulls it up, it looks like crap. Not sure how to describe it. Not bad like a lo res jpg or gif, just bad as in Vista isn't rendering this image very well. Vista is the only thing i can think of since it looks fine on a Mac and XP. the only thing different about the boss's machine is its running Vista. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this?

I posted up a jpg and a gif. Funny thing is, it looks like the same crap regardless of the jpg or gif.

I think i've narrowed it down to lightview. I'm using that for "click on the thumbnail and see the larger image" thing.

The imagetest.html looks fine on Vista. But when i pop that same image into the lightview link, it pops up looking like crap...in Vista.

Looks fine on Chrome, Safari, Firefox and IE7 on my Vista box, but I'm not a graphics designer, so maybe I just have lower expectations. Can you post a picture of what you see on your bosses computer?

Is it maybe a browser scaling issue? What size is the browser window? Have you tried to give it a defined size rather than letting the browser scale it?

It gets jaggies when I set IE 7 to display it at a custom scale.

here is a screenshot from Vista. Also understand Vista takes some awesomely crappy screenshots and its a jpg. But you can see the distortion especially in the blue outlines...

This page will show what it looks like in 50 different browsers running under different Operating Systems.

Takes about 30 minutes to an hour for all of the screenshots to propagate...

That is almost exactly what it looks like in IE 7 scaled at 95%.

yes. I think its a scaling issue. Not sure why it would be scaling though in Vista and not in any other browser. Or maybe its just on the bosses machine.

It has been years since I have played with website layout, are there any tags you can use to force graphics to show full size?
