Firefox and Safari had no problems with the rescaled images.

But thanks to your hint I figured out the real case of the problem.  
PIL seams to convert GIF images into PNG images. When I download a  
preview version of my image the image editor of my choice told me,  
that it's a png image but the original file is a GIF (in original size  
it looks good in IE).

I search a little bit in the plone documentation but can't figure out  
where I can change that behavior.
By the way, I use the Plone 3.0.6

thanks a lot
