Image not showing up in Internet Explorer

by seanstreet 17 replies
Hi everyone,

I am at work using a pc with Windows XP, and I have noticed that an image on my webpage is not showing up in Internet Explorer.

At home I have an Imac with Firefox and everything works fine. I don't understand why the image isn't showing in IE as I've gone over the html code and can see nothing wrong.

Has anyone got any suggestions for me please? I will add that I am new to html coding.

Thanks

    Hi Sean, if you see the image at home and not on other computers, it may be that the image is stored locally on your computer and hasn't been uploaded to the internet.

    If you see a blank page where the image is supposed to be and a tiny red x, it means it needs to be uploaded to your server.

    When you get home, try uploading the image again and see if that works,

      I was thinking in the same direction. Either a thrid-party application is blocking the image, or the path to the image, on the web, is invalid.

      You can probably see the image ont he other computer, because the store is indeed stored locally, like Michelle already pointed out.

      Could you perhaps link to this webpage, so we can see the properties of the image?

      Thanks Michelle,

      I'm pretty sure I have uploaded it, however as I said, I'm fairly new so you never know :-)

      I'll check it out when I get home.

      Much appreciated
      Sean

        Thanks IM_Geek,

        I just remembered, I have Parallels with XP on my Imac at home so I could open up IE in there to see if it loads up correctly.

          No problem, not sure if I could be any help.
          Remember though uploading the picture is only half the work. The path in the webpage itself should point to the location on the server, online, and not to a local path. Naturally, if you view the site locally, on your computer, it will show, but online, alas, it will not.
          So, if you spot a c:/documents and settings/my websites/... or something alike, then you're pointing to your local folders, while you should be referring to http://...

      Nope, still you luck.

      Still doesn't show up in IE or Flock.

      Thanks anyway.

    replace your image with this one, for some reason IE does not like that file

      Thanks James,

      You're a genius!! It now works in both IE and Flock.

      What did you do? I tried various things like making it into a gif, changing from cmyk to rgb, resizing it, changing it's name, all to no avail.

      Anyway, thanks very much for your help.

    First I downloaded your image and tried to open it in IE locally, same results the image would not load.
    So, I just opened it in InfranView and clicked "Save For Web" and then made sure the image would open in IE.
    I will have to take a better look at it later to find out what the issue was with the original image. If I figure it out I will let you know.

    Hi Sean,
    You must have been writing at the same time I was! I just posted a similar question a couple minutes ago... we could have combined our post. I have exactly the same problem so you might want to check my thread too just in case someone answers it or vice versa.
