Worth a try, but that isn't the issue. I have seen the problem in an html document (viewed in both Firefox and IE) and I also when viewed in Irfanview and in the built-in Windows viewer. Thanks anyway. I guess I will have to try to see if it could somehow be related to graph schemes (seems unlikely) or other default settings about the graph exporting. It's especially frustrating since I don't have Stata 10 to replicate it, but I can see that the files are wrong.

I tried the following (on my Stata 10.0/MP; last updated 15 Oct 2007):

sysuse auto
scatter mpg price
gr export png_test.png

Afterwards I used the MS Paint (Version 5.1 Build 2600; MS XP Pro
ServPack 2) to display the png. Everything looked as expected. Maybe
it is not the "png"-file that is broken but perhaps the software that
you use to display it?

Thanks for the advice. They say they have updated their Stata. Unlike in your
examples, the width and height options are not specified in the export command
(no options are specified). Do they have an impact on this problem?
