jpeg shows up when previewing in safari, but not when viewed after uploading to browser. CS5

Hi, I'm afraid I don't know the jargon as someone else has set this up for me and I just make new pages based on the templates.

But I've just uploaded 9 new pages all with 9 small images linked to the corresponding 9 large images. All of them work except one, where I changed the image a couple of months afterwards. So now the 9 small images and it's corresponding large image come up with a blue question mark in Safari, and blank in Firefox. However when you save and click on Preview in Safari etc. it all works fine.

I've checked the jpeg names have no spaces and no caps. They're exactly the same length as the other jpeg names within that set of pages; nothing longer than 10 letters or numbers. Also they're both RGB as someone mentioned that could be a problem.

Everything else works fine in the pages and all links work.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks

    Post your HTML code. It may be an issue with relative linking in your code. If possible, post a link to your active page on the site.

    The length of the name of the saved image doesn't matter. It sounds as though the links to the images maybe incorrect after reading your post. Please post a url to the page in question, someone can take a look at this issue and diagnose the problem for you.

    The images work just fine. Here's a screenshot:

    Also, I noticed that your domain is just pointing to a subdomain on your University's website. http://homepages.gold.ac.uk/millythompson and your site is loading using the frames - which is why your addressbar remains the same. However, if you navigate using the university URL, your links in URL address bar will change.

    They look like a pair of balloons with glitter on them. But, I like the way you think!

    The thumbnails refers to

    works/evasion/evasion851.jpg

    This file is missing.

     

    The main page evasion08.html refers to

    works/evasion/evasion8551.jpg

    This file is missing too.

    One more thing I noticed is the filename convention you've used.

     

    It looks like this:

    <tr align="left">

        <td><a href="evasion01.html"><img src="works/evasion/evasion55.jpg" alt="" width="55" height="40" border="0" align="top" /></a><a href="joy01.html"></a></td>

        <td><a href="evasion02.html"><img src="works/evasion/evad55.jpg" width="37" height="55" border="0" align="top" /></a></td>

        <td><a href="evasion03.html"><img src="works/evasion/evasion255.jpg" alt="" width="36" height="55" border="0" align="top" /></a></td>

        <td><a href="evasion04.html"><img src="works/evasion/evasion355.jpg" alt="" width="55" height="44" border="0" align="top" /></a></td>

      </tr>

      <tr align="left">

        <td><a href="evasion05.html"><img src="works/evasion/evasion155.jpg" alt="" width="55" height="31" border="0" align="top" /></a></td>

        <td><a href="evasion06.html"><img src="works/evasion/evasion455.jpg" alt="" width="55" height="35" border="0" align="top" /></a></td>

        <td><a href="evasion07.html"><img src="works/evasion/evasion555.jpg" alt="" width="30" height="55" border="0" align="top" /></a></td>

        <td><a href="evasion08.html"><img src="works/evasion/evasion851.jpg" alt="" width="55" height="37" border="0" align="top" /></a></td>

      </tr>

      <tr>

        <td><a href="evasion09.html"><img src="works/evasion/evasion755.jpg" alt="" width="33" height="55" border="0" /></a></td>

    I'd recommend that you give a proper order for filenames - they make your job easier - i.e. evasion01.html could hold evasion01.jpg as main image filename and evasion01_t.jpg as thumbnail image filename. This varies with different people but this is the methodology I'd use. Or another easy way of doing it is to put your main images into works/evasion folder with filenames like 01.jpg, 02.jpg, etc.. And put the thumbnails into works/evasion/thumbs with filenames like 01.jpg, 02.jpg, etc...

    There are a handful of reasons why 1 image may get missed out - even though they're all in the same folder.

     

    2 classic reasons for this would be:

     

    1. Connection timeout to your server when DW or your FTP client is trying to PUT files - this may cause a no file or a zero-byte file to be uploaded which may give you a File not Found 404 error - most common reason
    2. Malfunction of DW site cache in a way that DW loses track of recently changed files - this is very rare but has happened a few times with me

     

    Trust this helps.

     

    Good luck with your project.

     

    Cheers,

    ST

    Your code currently shows you are missing an anchor tag <a></a> around the evasion851.jpg thumbnail image:

     

    <td><img src="works/evasion/evasion851.jpg" width="55" height="37" alt="01" /></td>

     

     

    The code should be as follows:

     

     

    <td><a href="evasion08.html"><img src="works/evasion/evasion851.jpg" width="55" height="37" alt="01" /></a></td>

     

     

    However both images (evasion851.jpg & evasion8551.jpg) ARE NOT uploaded to your server in the place where the browser is looking for them which is here:

     

     

    http://homepages.gold.ac.uk/millythompson/works/evasion/evasion851.jpg

     

     

    http://homepages.gold.ac.uk/millythompson/works/evasion/evasion8551.jp g

     

    All you need do is make sure both those images are in the 'evasion' folder of your website. They will then show on your webpage.
