Pdreamweaver page preview pixelated

I’ve sliced up a site layout and placed the images in a table, and everything looks fine in Dreamweaver. But when I load the html file from my hard drive into Internet Explorer (via F12 or directly opening the file) all the images are pixelated and display much larger than their actual size. I’ve checked several times, and all of their widths/heights are set to their actual dimensions.

Here’s the really strange thing: when I upload that exact html document and images to my server and view it from there, everything displays fine, without any pixelation or incorrect scaling.

I’m using dreamweaver mx 2004, btw.

does anyone know if this a quirk in dreamweaver, or is there a setting I can mess with to correct the preview problem?

I appreciate any advice you can offer :slight_smile:
