Image preview in IE10

Jul 4, 2013 8:17 AM

Tags: #image #dreamweaver

After searching forums for two days -- still baffled. 

 

I have a jpg image that "previews in browser" fine for Chrome, and fine in the DW display panel, but refuses to "preview in browser" in IE10.  I suspect it is something about a specific jpg, because other jpgs in the same folder, etc. display fine.  Adobe chat support (very disappointing!) said "...it sounds like a browser or CSS problem." 

 

I have checked links, rooted, set up site correctly, etc.  URLs are fine (after all, it displays in Chrome, etc.)  Just that one jpg refuses to preview in IE10.

 

Any suggestions before I lose the second to the last of my remaining marbles?

    Your image is probably CMYK or too big for the web.

    1. In Photoshop, open image.  Go to File > Save For Web as optimized .jpg.
    2. Adjust height and width to fit your page layout.
    3. Choose a file size that isn't too large yet gives decent picture quality.

    Can you post your image somewhere where we can have a look at it or paste your image in these forums.

     

    Also, tell us something about your operating system - Win7 or Win8.

    Not sure what exactly is the problem but I have created a test page here.  Please  click on this link in IE10 and see if it loads at your end.

    Hi

     

    What happens when you insert the offending image into an otherwise blank HTML page?

     

    Does the image contain any copyright meta data, or an embedded ICC color profile?

     

    Can you open the image in IE10, from your image editing software, using its 'preview in browser' option?

     

    Note: IE does not have an image size limit, it did have a limit on the number of CSS files it could process for a page prior to IE10 though.

    Hi

     

    O/K, the next thing to try -

     

    Try saving the file for the web as a 'png' file, and see if this works.

     

    In your css you have caption text, can you see this text?
